Wool Fibre Artist
At Wool 4 Ewe Fiber Mill I process fiber and fabricate unique items with fiber. I demonstrate this process as well the products created at the mill.
About the Artist
Wool 4 Ewe Fiber mill began with the raising of sheep. At the first shearing the love for fiber was locked in and, on a small scale, the processing, by hand, began. The first two products were wool dryer balls and felted soaps.
These remain the most popular unique gifts for all occasions. Gradually the processing became more efficient due to the popular demand. We now utilize large equipment
A hand spinner could spin yarns from this state. A felter can design and create fabric and art from this state. Other options for uses for the fibre include stuffing a quilt or stuffed animals.
The wool can become great cat toys and finger puppets and rovings are often used in a Newfoundland originated form
Needle felting has regained popularity and can result in three dimensional figures (animals etc.) from fiber using a barbed needle, or two dimensional works such as landscapes (painting with fiber) can also be created. The uses of natural fibre are as limitless as the imagination.
