I got interviewed for a Meet the Artist section of the Felting and Fiber Studio. If you haven’t yet met these lovely group of people and are passionate about fibres, I highly suggest you pop by their Forum and introduce yourselves!
Today we have a Meet the Artist post, with Leonor from Felt Buddies answering our questions.
Q-3 Three types of fibre you can’t live without?
My first obvious choice would have to be sheep’s wool! It’s a lovely fibre to work with and oh so versatile – from felting to knitting, it’s wonderful for just about anything in my world. Although merino is a staple, I find coarser fibres are great for needle felting and love using them.
The second fibre would have to be alpaca hair, because the brown is just perfect for some animals I make, like horses. It’s just the perfect shade, but I have a confession to make: I don’t love working with it, it’s so fine it makes it hard to needle felt!
