Make these beautiful moulds of your feet in the best of British wool: Blue-faced Exmoor. A tried and tested experience that transforms wool into felt as you walk.An ancient legend tells of how the art of making felt began; a pilgrim used wool to protect her feet from blisters whilst walking. As she walked, the friction and moisture from her feet created the perfect conditions for transforming wool into felt.This is my adapted version which recaptures this ancient happening; it’s an experience resulting in beautiful moulds of your feet as an art object for display (they are not suitable as slippers as they are too soft!). This is a lovely project to do with friends, family and children. Walking, dancing or active games are required for up to an hour for the felting to happen.
As always and in keeping with my local sourcing ethos, the wool comes from British farms only.
