This felted notebook cover is a one of a kind. This notebook cover has a beautiful abstract design hand felted on one side with features of silk and pink paua shell. It fits an A5 notebook and comes with the first notebook. It is reusable so when you are finished, just pop in a new notebook.

Why wool?
• Wool is naturally fire resistant and fire retardant.
• It is natural odour resistant and antibacterial.
• It is biodegradable and very durable.
• A natural choice and healthy choice of fibre.
• We only use wool from non-mulesed sheep. It is a cruel practice and we take special care to make sure that our wool comes from sheep that are treated with love respect.

What is wet felting?

This item is handmade from scratch from fleece. Wet felting is a process starting with washed and carded fleece which is then laid out in layers. Warm water and soap is then applied and it is gently massaged to get the fibres to start to stick together. A pattern is then laid out using different coloured fleece to create a wool painting. The wetting and rubbing process is then continued until the wool is no longer coming apart and all the fibres are meshed together. Then the really vigorous part of rolling begins. Felters are known for having strong arms! Sometimes it can take hours to get a really thick tight piece of felt.
By using this technique and something called a resist we are able to make 3d items with no seams so this notebook cover is seamless. They are also completely unique, as with any type of art, you can never completely recreate something identically and the same is true for painting with wool.

To get some of the further details I then use a needle felting technique to put in some of the finer details. This involves using the carded fleece and a barbed needle which pushes the wool together and makes the fibres become entwined.

Please remember that computers show colours differently so sometimes the item might be slightly different than it looks on the screen.
