Pencil Roving and Recycled Sweater

What do pencil roving and a recycled wool sweater have in common?  They both can be felted.  Why not try felting both together?

Lately, I’ve been gazing at my selection of Bulky 2 Strand Pencil Roving from Imperial Yarn alongside a pile of recycled sweaters neatly stacked in my craft space.  I decided to season the pencil roving with cut-up felted sweater pieces.  The stack of fiber resembled the appearance of cooked spaghetti.  The felted pencil roving and sweater bits were transformed into a swatch of curiosity.

The felted sweater has been upcycled into a swatch of many possibilities.  By the way, check out the wonderful selection of yarn, patterns and pencil roving at www.ImperialYarn.com.

I live in a world of mixed media, primarily focused on yarn and fabric. Currently, I'm exploring the world of fashion design, specifically dart manipulation along with bead embroidery. I enjoy translating my work through the use of photography.
