    Those are all really neat!

    So, I TRIED felting with a front load machine! What a joke! I threw about ten tennis balls in, two old runners and three pairs of jeans.......the only thing I made was noise!!! Going to looks for an old top load washer to park in the lean-to shed!

    I don't know how to wet felt. I need to learn that. Tat horse is done by needle felting. He has NO superstructure at all. It is entirely made by rolling wool roving up and using a felting needle, and thousands upon thousands of poking motions, to felt it together, adding more here and there to shape it and add color.
    I wonder if wet felting would be faster?

    I think it would be faster for sure. I know when I had to wash all that wool and fur in the washing machine, we had to fill it with hot water (which would have been MUCH easier if our washing machine had temperature settings) and let the fur soak - but any kind of agitation was a huge no-no because the heat combined with the agitation of the wool felts it very fast. I think it has something to do with the lanolin in the wool, but I might be wrong. So it would get soaked for an hour or two, six or seven times and all we could do to help it along was to poke it with a stick!

    I can do commissions. Just have to figure out how to make them a bit faster. It takes about 6 hours , as is.

    Years ago I purchased a book called "Fleece Dog" by Japanese author Nobuko Nagakubo. It shows you how to make different breeds of felt dogs. I never got around to trying it out (par for the course with me, too many "bright ideas" and not enough time).

    Now that I've seen how brilliant your creations are, Tiny, I doubt I shall even try. I have a feeling mine would end up looking like my puppy's chewed sock toy .
