Felted Vessels - Natural Wool

Felted Vessels - Natural Wool

Regular price $0.00 Sale

These vessels are wet felted by hand and are available in a full range of natural or colors and sizes.

The materials are Navajo Churro or Cheviot wool in natural brown and cream colors, with some plant-dyed colors. One example is wool dyed with native Rabbit Brush, a plant that grows profusely in Colorado and much of the Southwest. The flowers and stems of the plant, when boiled, produce a beautiful soft and lasting gold color. 

The wool is washed, carded and handspun into roving. Very thin bits of the roving are wet-felted by hand in nine separate layers to provide a sturdy vessel.
