Wool Arrives
September 11, 2009

After a layover in New York so I could see what I was working with the wool made it back to New Hampshire! It’s five pounds of wool, half merino and half merino blend, which I ordered from Harrisville Designs to build the prototype for the yurt.

Upon opening the box the wool began to expand out of it’s batts – quickly!

The next task is pulling it all apart into little strips and pieces to lay across each other to felt.

Look how much one batt grows — all ten only took a few days!
