Wool felt again

Best sales of Etsy Winter season 20/21 were... Felted knittings and crochets!



Almost of my blog readers are searching for ideas for their projectst,so I offer perfect yarn for such knittings - Wool yarn for felting

I tried various yarns, and selected this - spun in Lithuania, thin, gives an opportunity to mix colours, makes very beautiful feltings. Yarn is thin, so I use few balls at once - 3 for knitted leg warmers, 7-8 for chair pads and even 10 for rugs. Felting is easy - 

1. stroke a bit in hot water with soap,

2. wash in washing machine short cycle (20 min) in warm water 40°C.

3. dry flat, iron with a steam.

2020

 What a year!... Everything is different... plans had to be changed, works ...recycled.


 


 

Every Summer my craft studio was turned into airbnb apartment. But in 2020 everything had to be changed because of quarantine. Tourists couldn't come because of safety of my old neighbours. My studio is situated in a beautiful part of Vilnius - Žvėrynas. In old times it was forest over the river for Lithuanian Dukes to hunt. Later it turned into district of wooden villas. 

Now it is an upscale green residential neighbourhood of Vilnius. My studio is in one of such villas - about 100 years old. My neighbours - old lovely sisters, whose grandfather's brother built this villa before the WW2. 

So, as almost all the world had to stay home, I had to beautify the households :) Lots of rugs, placemats, chair cushions, hammocks were made and flied to all over the world.

One of the items I made - was Chair cushions from recycled sheets  from airbnb times:


Most of the items were made from recycled cotton ropes. Vig crochet rugs :


 And Smaller swirly rugs :


 Colourful crochet chair pads :


 Crochet pillows in Granny squares style :
