This "felt pelt" is wet felted by hand using traditional ancient techniques. This is made with natural gray colored lincoln longwool and merino and romney wool. The locks have light gray, a little dark gray, and a nice silver color throughout the piece. I source the fleece from shepherds which I receive raw right after shearing. I clean, comb, and card the wool and then using hot water and organic soaps, felt by hand the wool fibers into one large piece. The lincoln longwool is sourced from a farm in Tennessee that I have gotten wool from for years and is very lustrous.

These felt pieces are inspired by actual hides and a trip to Scandinavia where I saw sheep and animal skins everywhere. The technique or "recipes" to make them are drawn from Mongolian felt traditions. Mongolians stomp on the wool and roll the soft felt around tree trunks that they drag from horses to strengthen and finish the felt. I felt outside using my hands and bare feet and then roll the wool around poles to finish the felting process. I have been finishing the felt by rolling it behind my truck to further felt the pieces.

This felt would make a wonderful throw or even a rug.

The felt can be machine washed in a large front loading machine on cold and hung to dry. This piece is extremely thick and measures approximately 25 inches wide by 47 inches long.
