This isn't the first felted bowl I've made....but it is the first using pre-felt batting. And....I'm disappointed.
My conclusion is that this particular pre-felt batting needs to be used in much thicker depths than what I expected. So....I'll try again...and perhaps incorporate some roving (from another source) into mix and see if I can achieve better results.
UPDATE: After more investigation.....I've learned there is a difference in pre-felt battings.......some....like the ones I used do not require pulling apart and layering.......that aspect has been addressed during the making of the pre-felt. Soooooo, perhaps that's why I've had so much trouble.....I should have used them as is. Stay tuned.....I'm a determined wanna be wet felter!!
