Felted Warp Thread

Becky Jo Gartner (a talented textile artist, photographer, designer of Blue Lady Bug and friend) accidentally felted a huge merino wool weaving warp she was dyeing, and she sent me a big envelope with some of it inside!

I made the sample on the left (5″x14″, merino wool, sheep wool, linen) with a frame and used an embroidery needle to weave because I don’t have access to a loom! I still have most of the warp and will try a bigger version once I get some equipment.

I did a sample with wire for warp threads after this one, but it was not as successful!
