Fiber art gives you so many options (maybe too many). And, as the red-blooded fiber person that I am, I am willing to try every technique available.

Many months ago, a colleague from Catsclaw Theatre had a studio sale that included roving he had made that used silk, wool and acrylic. I’d never used roving, but the colors were so fun, that I HAD to buy some.

But, what to do with this beautiful varigated fiber?

I finally decided to purchase some felting needles and take a chance.

And, boy, is it fun!

The long fibers of the roving made my first attempt a wee bit fuzzy, but it was a good experience, and one I will try again.
