Autumn/Winter Cloth _ WIP

Still a Work In Progress this one; the moons have shifted and are in flux; showing the phases and yet still full. I want to stitch some more into this. See it below atop my Summer Cloth with its lone green moon over taken by a shadow of felt.

Christmas Fair

 This is the grey massam teacosy I felted the other day; added appliqu├ęd gingham hearts to it and blanket stitch to the bottom; sold it so I am happy! In fact I sold 4 teacosies and lots of the stuffed xmas trees and hearts.

I even sold one the little coloured twines even though it was just there as decoration!

An alternative to Massam wool?

This is a close up of a felted teacosy made with Masham/Massam wool. It is a beautiful colour and is British. Trouble is it has a very long staple length which isn't particularly suitable for small items like teacosies; I am on the hunt for the same wonderful naturally grey coloured wool with a shorter staple; any felters out there that can help?
