Felted items

Here are some felted mittens I have made. The purple and red were made for my daughter about 13 years ago out of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride bulky. My son wore them too, years later. The slippers I just made Christmas 2009. I knit them out of unspun romney roving. While trying a dye experiment for rug hooking, I had a pot left over of red dye I bled from wool fabric so I stuck one pair of slippers in before felting. These worked up so quickly and felted very easily. They are very popular. I made a 3rd pair, for my son, using a mix of yarn and roving that came out great also. I cannot find them at the moment. I would make these again anytime. It took about 2 days of leisurely work per slipper.
