The Scottish Landscape Picture Felt Kit contains:
Enough pure merino fleece in 13 different shades – 5 shades of green, 3 shades of blue, 2 shades brown/terracotta and 3 lighter shades for depth. You can complete either one large picture (45 x 20 cm) or 6 smaller pictures.The kit also contains curly wool fibres, prefelt, wool yarns and coloured silk fibres.
Fully illustrated instructions, felting needle, templates, pure olive oil soap flakes, thin plastic sheet, foam and bubble wrap. It is advised that you watch the online tutorial. A small picture normally takes about 1 1/2 hours.
You can do small amounts at a time; only the very last part should be done in one go.
This felting kit is ideal for someone who has some experience of felt making; the instructions will give you a guide on how to build up a Scottish Landscape felted picture with Highland Cattle. You will learn how to layer prefelt to create a landscape with depth. The felting needle is included to help you define the shapes in the felted picture and add details.
Artfelt’s high quality felt-making kits are all individually and carefully designed. Everything you need to start felting is included – all you need are some simple household items, warm water and your own creative hands. There are individual illustrated instructions and this kit also has its own unique tutorial, giving a simple step by step guide. These great kits use the finest soft merino tops 70s (21 micron). I get my merino fleece from a renowned UK Wool Merchant, who sources the merino wool from non-mulesed flocks in South America, and then dyes the fleece using dyes that are non-toxic, colour fast and baby-safe. The Scottish kit also has curly sheep fleece, sourced from UK flocks and then hand-dyed by me in my studio in Somerset.
