Based on my original 'Jumping Waves' - this custom piece shows a family of nine playing in the sea in Hawaii.

This hanging is wetfelted from 80% Black Shetland wool fibre(which is actually dark brown) and 20% dyed black merino fibre. I 'drew' the picture with light coloured boucle yarns directly onto the background fibres, added Black Wensleydale locks along the bottom edge for a fringe, and felted it by hand using nothing but soap, water and muscle power.

Once it was dry I added freemotion machine embroidery for extra detail and dimension, and to convey a feeling of movement. Finally a few hand embroidered stitches for splashes and droplets of water. I have signed and dated it in stitch.. bottom right hand corner, you would have to look for it to find it.

Measurements: 90cm (35.5) x 51cm (20") excluding fringe.

I have created a calico channel for a hanging rod to pass through, which I have hand-stitched securely onto the back. I have freemotion embroidered the title of the piece onto the calico for posterity.



Care:
Felt is not suitable for machine washing or tumble drying.
As this is a piece of wall art it is incredibly unlikely that you would ever wish to wash it (felt being naturally dirt and odour repellant anyway). A quick shake to remove dust should be sufficient. Or carefully vacuum it.

If for any reason you do need to wash it;
Gently handwash in tepid water, rinse at same temperature, press between 2 towels to remove excess water, pull back into shape & dry naturally. I would not recomend washing unless its unavoidable as there is a risk of losing definition in the embroidery!!
