So years ago I entered a contest with a wool jacket that I had felted myself on my Bernina machine with the needle punch unit. It was really the first time I had ever felted anything, but not the first time I had worked with wool. I love working with wool but I have a problem with it. I am allergic to it. I spent hours felting and more hours itching and sneezing, but I’m nothing if not a glutton for punishment.
A really good wool is a pleasure to work with in that it is so easily manipulated. A quality wool sews together like butter. Curves melt into each other and seams mold to each other when steam is applied.
This year I got the chance to work with a Wool Melton. I have to say it is probably the most wonderful wool I have ever worked with. Not only did it do everything I wanted it too but I was not effected allergy wise like I usually am when I work with wool. I was in heaven. Check out all our wool melton selections at Fabrics.net
