Woven – the Interconnected Community Supporting Our Sheep

posted in: Felting, Fiber Arts | 3


All that I do as a shepherd is part of an interconnected community of individuals, from sheep shearers, to veterinarians, to mills, to hay farmers, to local feed stores, and to knitters and fiber artists. Our lives are all woven together through my flock of sheep. This felted vest represents that woven community and our relationships, one to another.

I felted this vest, using merino and our own Gotland wool. Those grey curls of wool were:

  • left in their natural form of grey lustrous curls,
  • spun into yarn,
  • woven into fabric,
  • felted,
  • stitched,
  • and even sculpted.

    Would love it if you would consider putting together a kit for purchase. It would be great if it could be offered in a few different sizes.

    Thanks so much!
