Learn the ancient, primitive skill known as Wet Felting & make your very own Custom Mittens from luxurious Alpaca Fleece! Grown on our Arizona Farm!
Alpaca Fleece is softer, lighter and warmer than sheep's wool!
It is naturally hypoallergenic and lanolin free! It is the most luxurious & sustainable animal fiber on Earth!
Wet felting is a technique that combines temperature changes and friction that causes microscopic scales on the fibers to become entangled forming an unwoven durable textile.
Strengthen your resiliency by reclaiming this skill and connect to a sacred practice that empowers you with a new ability to take a pile of fleece lacking function and form - and transform it into beautiful, sustainable, wearable art!
That will keep your hands warm all winter long!
Space is limited!
Bring a pillow or mat to sit on. We will be working on the floor.
Bring a healthy lunch, snacks and water. Full kitchen w/ fridge to keep your food in & a stove is available.
