Mohair Clutch7

March 23, 2009

Challenges and more challenges were on the menu today. Using a new Mohair roving in a raspberry color, layered with varying hues of pinks, watermelon, scarlets,  canary, sherbet orange and some cream, to achieve this clutch. The mohair is either just meant to be “hairy” or it is mixed with a non feltable fiber like nylon. I had to full this piece two times and there were so many loose surface hairs. The second fulling was achieved with a tumble  in the dryer for ten minutes. This tightened the fibers yet the outside STILL had numerous wispy fibers. I ironed it heavily concluding that it was still not fulled properly, then, I realized the mohair was the culprit.  Dimension: 5″ x 12″Mohair clutch 8
