While I was visiting Adelaide last week I was able to go to spinners and weavers with mum at mt barker. they were having a workshop on faux felt. They have a trading table which has different things on it each fortnight. I just had to have the thick wool in different blues. I have started making a mat out of it on the knitting board . its 18 inches wide and I will make it as long as the wool last. I think it will e good in the laundry for Wayne to stand on while he dose our washing.
