Depending on the physical effort placed upon it, it can be either be a fine flowing scarf, or a durable sturdy vessel.

Biography
Alicia Boisvert is a Biologist & Teacher by trade, creator by design. Her art is inspired by the natural world and the complex beauty it holds. She has always been creating and has furthered her personal expression with the founding of EntWorks and discovering wool as her primary medium. Her goal is to make Creative Adaptations of Nature using ecologically sound & renewable materials. She aims for art that has beauty in form and practicality in function.
While living in the heart of England’s sheep country, she sourced wool from local vendors and studied as a member of the International Felting Association. The wool comes from animal friendly farms that do not practice docking and the fleeces are colored with natural and Oeko-Tex dyes. She continues her participation in the Global Campaign for Wool which celebrates the wonderful quality of the natural fiber and the increased awareness of its benefits.
