My Whiplash Entry ...... Hand Felted Cuffs

This is my entry for October's Whiplash competition, the theme is accessories. These are hand felted vintage style cuff's (wrist warmers). Great for keeping the autumn chill out. The lace has been hand felted into the wool, so it becomes part of the fabric. I have used merino wool, which is very soft and cosy, and hand dyed tussah silk (the pink fibres on the surface). The cuffs have been finished off with some pretty fabric and delicate roses.

LOVE these! I've seen knit wrist warmers before, but never felted or sewn. Great idea!
