Mystery feltable


In op shops I always check for wool but I don't often find anything I can use. This was just one ball, which had been partially knit and rewound tightly, marked 60c. It didn't look that appealing for most purposes, but for that price I took a gamble. It looked like it had nice colour changes, and it felt like it might felt. I tested a piece and it felted really nicely. So I'm getting started on this year's Christmas baubles. (Experimenting with a different shape too). I would love to know if anyone recognises these colours, though I might need a daylight photo.

baubles in felt - coziness itself. Think the yarn is Cleckheaton Vintage Hues http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/cleckheaton-vintage-hues (Rav link)

I agree - pretty sure it is Vintage Hues! Love the idea of felted christmas decorations.

Thirding the Vintage Hues - would recognise that colour combo anywhere!

A good pick up for 60c!
