Playing with prefelts

There sure is a lot of versatility with pre-felts. Not only have I used cloth from no longer worn scarves and skirts, I’ve also gotten into making my own base cloths using yarns both commercial and handspun. Here are knitted (both hand and machine) and woven samples. First in their pre-felt stage then shrunken: head hunting anyone?
