wool stuffed

this viking girl is made from Harmonyart fabrics as well. She will also travel to the NY exhibition and is the first with a wool stuffing.
I found it not so easy to stuff her firmly without having dents and dints. But now she´s done. Sigh

I love your viking and the natural stuffing! When I knit to felt shapes I use the leftover wool to stuff the items - I like it better than polyester stuffing!

If you can make it there,
you´ll make it anywhere...

New York, New York!

Viel Erfolg!

Thanks for posting the photo of your wool stuffing. The wool I am using has been carded (combed) so all the fibers are in line and it looks and stuff a lot more like polyester. That might be a lot easier for you to work with.

I have made a few "Waldorff dolls"
and stuffed them with washed wool but uncombed or so. It was just sooo much work to first tear the fibers apart. In the course we had to tear for so long that every bigger bit or straw was out there. Took hours and in the end you had a huge pile wich was only good to stuff a little thing.
I trully have admiration for your perseverance on this queest for perfect, natural filling.

In the future I see you living with a lot more of Frederike's relatives. And a workshop what makes the most beautiful soft filling wool in the world :-)
