Bird houses are moving along. After I cut the holes I rolled them a little I put them in to some pantyhose tops for a trip through the dryer to get some of the fulling done.
They tumble for about 20 minuets without any heat. Then it’s back to hand fulling to finish them. I did some with merino and some with romney. Here you can see the shrinkage difference between the wool. The merino ones are on top.
Next is they get rinsed and more balloons inside to get them to dry the right shape.
You will notice that the green ones are not in this picture, this is why:
This is their 10th soak so the next step is to boil them to see if that stops the bleeding.
I will do the finishing work on the bird houses this weekend. Why is the finishing always the hardest part. I will add the hanging sting and hang them up for one final picture for you.
