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 enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
