underwater mantles

I was asked to use wool and from the first moment i wished to refer to the traditional technique, practiced by people living in mountains all over the world -  felting wool for coats and pants.

Undyed felt made in Poland. Walnut leaves and iron sage as base colors. Little flowers for all the details as well as the allover handstitches and undyed linen separate linings.

Catnip, geranium, dahlias, coreopsis in funny bundle bundles.

Draping the felt blankets into mantles.
