Niagara Felters

For those local readers, we are having a workshop with the new Niagara Felters Group (find us on Ravelry or through the Fibre Garden in Jordan, ON). The information and registration is through either site. I will be showing those attending how to make balls and ropes with merino roving, and finish into bracelets and bangles. It is a good method to get a feel of what wet wool can do when soap and heat and agitation occur! Remember: when wool behaves like this on purpose - it is called felting, by accident: shrinking!
