The Results

What a fun 3 hours! I have just returned home (in an horrendous snowstorm!) from a morning felting with 18 second graders(8 years old). They were so good and had real fun especially with the soapy water part!! I bet their hands have never been so clean!!!

Thank you 2B!

So here is what we did
First we covered the ball with white roving
and then added the colour..

Yarn was then wrapped around to help keep the roving in place
The balls were put into tights legs, wetted and gently rolled.

Now the wool had started to felt, more gentle rolling

Now comes the hot soapy water and away they go!
Final rinse

Final roll on towels to remove some of the water
All ready to play!
