I was at the Chronicle book shop and found this Fuzzy Felted Friends, by Saori Yamazaki. I was drawn to the beautiful photos of the creations being put to use around the house. The entire book focuses on using raw wool fibers with a felting needle. Yeap - “no knitting involved “to create cute animals. Felting needle to make adorable animal and everyday items, like an grey elephant tea cozy , a teapot cover to keep the teapot warm while you enjoy your jasmine green tea, or a chubby mouse pincushion. Did you know that “the wool preventing the needles from getting rusty due to its natural oils"?
