As I was making this, I thought all the texture reminded me of a sea creature with tentacles or a mermaid with scales and long, flowy hair. So I decided that after I finished felting it, it would be perfect dyed light blue with an over dye of grays and browns to make it look like a sunken treasure that was pulled from the sea.
I made this top using a resist. I placed a layer of silk gauze on the resist and then a layer of white wool merino roving and then layered it with various textures. Cute little pocket on the side.
I dyed it a very light blue using the microwave oven as the heat source. After that I soaked it in iron water and then wrapped it and shibori felted it in a pot of eucalyptus leaves.
You can see all the texture from the shirbori wrap on the back of the tunic top.
I love all the texture and the colors.
