Using Yarn Scraps with Vibrance Wool Art

Using Yarn Scraps with Vibrance Wool Art

This lovely piece was needle felted by Vicki of Vibrance Wool Art. After Vicki purchased the yarn used for some of this piece from me, she got in touch and gave me such a compliment (I’m quoting her so I don’t forget). She said:

“I’m the flat felting artist who bought a couple of skeins of yarn from you at the Prairie Fibre Festival. I have been felting for four years and have walked right by all the yarn all that time, until I saw yours. Please consider saving any scraps you may have to sell to me.  I don’t know why, maybe the crinkley texture, but they get my creative juices flowing!.”

Of course compliments are the way to my heart, so how could I say no? I asked Vicki if she could provide some details regarding her use of my yarn scraps. She replied: “My artform goes by many names, including dry felting, needle felting, flat felting, painting with wool, etc.  But basically it involves jabbing wool roving or yarn into place using a barbed needle.” And we can all relate to how satisfying that must be!

Thanks so much to Vicki for sharing her art with me. You can find her beautiful felted landscapes and animals on Etsy.
