Announcement   Behind the hands, life in Seattle and adventures around the Pacific Northwest: yellowelm.com

Each Yellow Elm art piece begins with bright ideas, colorful thoughts and a natural material called wool roving. The process of wet felting dates back thousands of years and transforms the roving into finished felt. The fibers of the roving are torn apart and arranged in a crisscross pattern. Then, the roving endures a boiling bath and rough scrub, but it’s all for the best—the fibers interlock and begin to dry and shrink. The felt forms, ready to be embellished with decorations like beading and lace.

Yellow Elm accessories and artwork boast a balance of both classic and modern appeal; the ancient process ensures a unique and natural quality while the design is original and current.
