Prefelts




Red prefelts

Sojourner Design offers a large variety of hand-dyed and natural-colored pre-felts.  A prefelt is carded wool which has begun but not completed the felting process.  My prefelts are carded wool that has been needlefelted by my processing mill into batts that measure about a yard square and weigh about 14 ounces.  I cut these batts into quarters and dye them into many hues.  Variations include:

-color over white wool vs overdyed blended or streaked wool
-even dyeing vs variations in saturation or even splotchy, tie-dyed  appearance
-one hue vs a collage of subtle hue changes
 








Green and blue prefelts

In most cases the felting process should be continued until the prefelt has actually been fulled to felt.  Although there are people far more knowledgeable about this than me, I will provide a link here soon to help clarify this process.

Because of the degree of variability it is much easier to buy prefelt in person.   My suggestion is to look at the photos above to get some sense of what is available, then go to the prefelt listing at my Zibbet shop and contact me there about what you're looking for.  If I have a good match we'll proceed with a sale.

But what can you do with pre-felts?  

Keep on scrolling to have a look at some of my projects!  Please note that most of these projects were undertaken before I really appreciated the benefit of fulling prefelt.  At this point most of the items pictured below would be more fulled if I were completing them today.  That said, I just love doing a little embroidery doodling on a prefelt!

By the way... all yarn shown is my own hand-dyed yarn.
