I have made the felt in a non traditional way (not with felting needles), I used a variegated thread and sewn in free motion over the natural alpaca fibers. It is used as an applique embellishment on a silk blouse.
I found the fibers at a World Market store, not in a crafts shop. They are naturally dyed, 100% Alpaca fibers, very soft to the touch.
The silk organza is from fashion fabrics club. It is sheer and crinkles when washed. The color is a light olive green.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
