Thermoformable Felt


Thanks to all the poeple who have taken some to experiment with. I think I have enough people working with it now - I shall share what they do when their excitments come back.

 We have just received a shipment of thermoformable wool felt - 90% wool/10% polyester.
Heaps of possibilities and you can read all about it and see the colours here

I am excitedly looking forward to playing with it but I am seeking about 6 people who would like to experiment with it as well. Not just stitch in it (it is wonderful for that without all the other attractions, but textiley nuts like me who like to try things out). Follow the instructions I have on the website but also be prepared to experiment - stitch, play, mould, and try heat gun. Forinstance I am planning to stitch scrim over the surface and mould with that - maybe.....

If you are interested and think you could do justice for me in a couple of weeks, please email me mail@thethreadstudio.com and I will send you a couple of pieces. We are selling them 50cm x 50cm - a nice big size.

All I need then is for you to return your excitements back to me and we will pop you on the web in your glory.

How exciting! Postage time a little prohibitive for here but I look forward to seeing what comes back!

Sounds like an interesting product. I would love to volunteer to try it out for you but I know the next two weeks are going to be very busy. I look forward to seeing what others do with it.
