Spring coloured Wool Tops for Making Felt
When I walked into the warehouse this morning with Sharon's cup of tea, I couldn't resist coming back with the camera to photograph this assortment of wool tops.
6 of the 9 colours of Wool tops waiting to be bagged up
Sharon was in the process of collating together the wool tops into a 1kg mixed bag of light colours. There are nine colours in this selection and I was struck at how Spring-like the colour combination is. These 1kg mixed bags are also available in a selection of mid tone colours and a selection of the dark colours, making them an economical way of sampling the entire colour range.
If you haven't yet had a go at felt making, these lovely pastel shades may tempt you, and we hope our Fact File pages on felt making will give you enough information to get you started.
