I 'discovered' this felted wool anorak in my wardrobe, where it has been - practically unused - for ...well, about ten years. (Yrk, ten years??)
Even though I love the colour of natural, undyed wool it doesn't really look that good on me. Especially not the almost white wool from merino sheep. Why I've never thought of dyeing it before is beyond me - but I found myself fortuitously pulling it out of my closet - while - incidentally - being in possession of some eucalypt leaves. They don't normally grow in these parts of the world, but I've been wanting to try them out for a while now. And I'm glad I did!

And happy Autumn, by the way!


  1. very pretty, your crocheted pieces are very nice too.

  2. as l said on the f/book blog...omg it's beautiful and l am in love with it. Did you make the felt and top too?xxlynda

  3. Thanks! :)
    I bought the anorak, it's felted by hand, in one piece, from pre-felt.

  4. Impressive to a felter who has not yet done eco-dyeing but is admiring and inspired on seeing what can be done on wool. Very nice!

  5. This is amazing. The prints are bold and bright. How come. I admire you very much.

  6. Beautiful! The colors are so bright, cheerful, and perfect for the season!
