I love the sheen the bombyx adds to the matte merino wool on these cobweb felt scarves. Everything is getting polka dots these days. It must be polka dot season.
Normally I only make one of a kind items, but I just had to keep this scarf so I made another one like it to sell at the DHS craft fair in Denton, TX. The wool was dip dyed and ranges from a bright scarlet to a deep burgundy. The polka dots are prefelt laid on top of the red roving.

This is the start of a purse with gray prefelt pebbles. I want it to look like river stones when it is finished. It has a two resists, so it will have an interior pocket when it is felted.
