This Is One of My Beautiful & Unique Hand Felted Merino Wool WaistCoats ..
I Made This Midnight , Fusion & Petrol Blue Top By Firstly Hand Felting A Merino Wool Base Around My ‘Resist’ This Method Means The Waistcoat Is Seamless.
I Added Tencel Fibres & Felted In A Silk Fabric Panel On One Side With A Spiral Motif Nuno-Felted Into The Silk.
I Also Felted In Some Tassels Around The Base & Chunky Felted Cords To Tie.
I Then Wet Felted The Whole Piece Together.
Once I Had This Basic Piece For This Top I Placed It Onto My Mannequin & Hand-sewed The Lapels & Corseted The Back With Hand Made Chunky Merino Wool thread Into A Intricate One-Off Design..
Felt Is Very Cosy & Makes A Practical & Stylish Layer For Autumn Chill.
* Matching Hand-Warmers Or Arm Warmers Are Available To Complete Your Look & Really Bring Your Outfit Together.
This Funky Top Is Small/Medium.
U.k Size 10-12

**I Have Done My Best To Accurately Depict The Colours Of My Creations..However Colour Settings Vary On Different Monitors ..So Please Be Aware That Colours Of Actual Garments May Differ From Those Shown Here.**
Felt Is A Very Durable & Eco Fabric ,With Proper Care It Should Last Many Seasons.
Due To The Friction Created When Wearing It Felt May ‘Fuzz-Up’ Over Time,To Restore It To Its Original State Just Dampen The Surface Using A Misting Spray Bottle Containing Luke-Warm Water & Using A Pressing Cloth Cool Iron Firmly & Air Dry…Thats It…
Your Felt Garment Won’t Need Washing Often, But When You Feel It Does You Can Get It Dry Cleaned,Which I Recommend For Large Pieces, As When Wet Felt Is Very Heavy Making It Difficult To Handle,Also It Takes A Fair While To Dry.
For Small Items However,(Hats,Hand-warmers etc ) A Cool Handwash With Natural Olive Soap In The Water Is Perfect. Make Sure You Rinse Well ( Gentle Wringing Out Is Fine ) & Then Reshape & Dry – In The Airing Cupboard Is Ideal. Once Dry Or Almost dry You Can Cool Iron Your Felt,Making Sure You Use A Pressing Cloth ,To Protect Any Silk/Soy/Synthetic Embellishments .
My Creations Are All Hand Felted With Love, & Each Is A Truly Unique Piece of Wearable Art.
I Adore Experimenting With Design & The Alchemy Of Wool Is So Magikal, Making Every Garment Is A Journey For Me.By Purchasing A Flux Garment You Help Me Realize My Dream…Thank You.
