Felt with Bamboo and Ramie

Hello! I have been experimenting with using bamboo and ramie tops in my felt

005s

This is a felt brooch I finished today, it’s merino wool with bamboo tops. I really like bamboo, it’s really soft and it looks a bit curly when it’s felted.

001s 003s

I made these last Thursday when I was at My friend‘s house. The bowl has ramie tops laid on to it.  Ramie is a plant and isn’t as soft as bamboo.  It’s like very fine hair but has a similar effect to bamboo.

Thanks for looking :)

Knitting in the Sunshine

Yesterday spring came again! Me and Mum cycled into Skipton (our nearest town). we did some shopping and I went to Purl&Jane and I bought three balls of ‘essentials soft merino aran’ it’s gorgeous and soft and it’s superwash, so I can put it in the wash and hopefully it won’t felt! I’m going to use it to make a pachwork blanket, I had already made one square but It was with dk wool and it took me longer than I wanted. I am still going to use it though!
