Beneath II

Here is my newest piece: Beneath II!

After weeks of dyeing various fibers (wool, alpaca curls, silk charmeuse, silk cocoons, silk yarns and more!) -all differing values of a particular green (mix the acid dyes: sun yellow and avocado to duplicate), I then wet felted up a storm. The resulting textiles had even richer and more intricate patterning and texture than my first attempt at this.

It’s a total joy to cut and sew felted material. You can cover any mistake (important for me!) and it’s just lovely to touch. Here’s a close-up:
