This video has just been posted on one of my yahoo fibre groups... I really enjoyed it... and yet another book is now added to my wish list!
I dont fancy trying felting with nettles (ha ha), but as a spinning fibre I`ve been pretty interested for a few years - who knows I may get round to experimenting this year!
What John-Paul says applies just as much to wool & linen as nettles I think. For someone like me with a fascination in social history, heritage crafts AND the environment, this promises to be an interesting read. And, maybe a bit of a much needed prod (in my case) toward using even more of my local natural materials.
Next post is a felty one ...... promise :)
