Fiber Art

Wooly Potholders: Online Course

Course Overview

It really is a miraculous fiber!  Take wool from a sheep, add water soap and agitation and a durable, washable, material is created.  Add fire resistant, mildew and odor resistant qualities, and it becomes a great fiber for kitchen use.  The potholders will not only be practical, but aesthetically beautiful. Using needle felting you will create designs you will want to hang on the wall, not hide in a drawer.  Enough material will be sent for two potholders.
