STAGE 1 .
This is the very beginning , making this takes about an hour to form , use your hands and needle to mould the wool to shape . The best fleece to use is Corriedale , Cheviot ..... most downland types of fleece with a short staple length of fibre.
Come back next time and see the head take shape with the inclusion of Reborn Eyes.
|The very start of a Frenchie head ......this is simply a fistful of wool.|
This is washed lambs wool of an English downland sort of sheep .
|I mostly use a single needle felting needle called a 38 star|
I have made an extra little mound for the snout..
Needle Felt them together and then layer corriedale top over the whole shape..
It will seem very floppy at this stage but do persevere.
