The Feederbrook Fiber Project : Felting

Thank you to my Mom and Mother -in-law for taking my kids to the farm this past weekend. They got to dye, and learn how to felt the wool from their sheep into little pumpkins. They brought some more wool home so they could teach me how to do it. I have to go to the fabric store and pick up some felting needles this week.

We had such a great experience with this fiber project. The kids learned so much over the year about where wool comes from and what we can do with it. Most of all I appreciated how passionate Lisa (the farmer) was about the sheep and the wool. I love for my children to see people who truly love what they do and express to much joy in their work. It is inspiring for all of us.
