This is a video tutorial, detailing how to make a wet felted wool curl. This is a great element that can be added to jewelry or other decorative stuff. It is a really useful thing to know how to make, because they can add a much needed organic feel to a design that is starting to feel too static. I love them and thought that I would share.

Step 1: Get your materials together

Here is what you will need for this simple wet felting project:

Wool roving
A pipe cleaner
A felting surface (like ribbed shelf liner)
Soap
Really hot water
bamboo skewer
 

This was so helpful! I tried to make a felted curl on the end of a pencil but got lots of rough fibers sticking out. Didn't realize that it would have been better to us merino. Also had a tough time getting the curl to stay; but now see how brillant it is to use the pipe cleaner as the core. Thanks!!!

Nice. Good idea if you need exact colour of flat felt. Locks are great if you don't need a colour match
...Hmmm?
