TaraTaraTara's Shop Announcement

Hello Felt Fans,
I wet-felt balls and all sorts of fun items. Wool so colorful, happy, warm -n- cool. It's ALL NATURAL! Wool is meant for creative people like me who truly LOVE creating beautiful decorative art that can take a beating! Wool can breathe & has a memory.
~ "Balls TO BE" ~ Felt is basically tangled wool! Wool is wonderful because it quickly conducts heat, it repels water, it floats on water, and it is fire retardant. Wool is 100% organic to nature, so it's 100% PURE & NATURAL. Organic materials offer artist like me the ability to create almost anything!
I like to focus on creating perfect 3D circle forms. Balls are cool and my balls will give you endless pleasure. Felt offers you GREAT POTENTIAL in so many aspects of life! The range is so broad I don't even know where to begin.

~ " How I DO IT" ~ I transform high quality carded Merino wool roving into handmade felt by compacting the wool & carefully needle felting 3D shapes. I finish off by " wet-felting" my "needle felt" pieces. This transformation process is called " fulling" which is a steady and controlled rock & roll pressurized hand motion with the help of a hot water sudsy bubble bath & wash. The wool's density thickens to become felt!

Handmade felt has a fantastic because of its soothing body feel on your skin. Do you know that felt is the ONLY SEAMLESS fiber material on this ENTIRE Earth? It's TRUE!
I love color. Color is motivating,meaningful & memorable because it activates people's sensory nervous system. Color is truly addictive! I am promoting color addiction because it's easy on the eyes and mentally stabilizing.
