Felted Wool and Silk Vessel - a rainy day project

Below is some carded unwashed wool and the silk I used in my first felt vessel.
I had a lot of fun with this.  I think there will be more  coming up.




The vessel is quite thick at the bottom because I felted a small doiley into the base.
Apart from the thickness it does  not show much from this angle.


Here is a look at the base and there is the lovely design of that doiley I was talking about!

My finished article.  I like the way the light shows through at the top showing
the interesting texture.  Isn't wool so amazing.  So much can be done with it!
Unfortunately cows are everywhere around here.  It is hard to find many sheep at all.
