Delving through the goodies in my delivery from Germany has sparked so many creative projects it is almost hard to concentrate! I decided to work my first piece in Alpaca without adding any other fibres and see how it reacted to felting. The fibres looked absolutely amazing laid out on the bubble wrap, exactly like a long hank of beautiful chestnut hair. They were really quick to felt and surprisingly I found that they felted particularly well in the opposite direction to how I had laid them out. Because I wanted to make a long supple scarf I had just laid one layer, almost as fine as cobweb feling. Anyway, pretty soon I had a really soft but pretty narrow scarf, really luxurious, but a bit plain. I do like some items to be very unadorned but next time I am going to add a little of the finest merino wook and a few silk strands to see what the difference is.
