Your Wool Is Waiting For You!

How many of us have stashes of wool? I'm thinking lots! Even if you're a beginner, I can pretty much guarantee you'll soon get 'hooked' and build up a 'collection'.

That's why this site is here - to help you use up your stash, and to teach you some other tips and techniques on your crafting journey.

Talking of 'hooked' - how about learning some crochet? If you're a beginner, try starting with how to crochet. There you'll find how to form a slip knot, work chain and single crochet, all with full color pictures to help you along.

If you'd rather learn a few more stitches to expand your crochet repertoire try the links from crochet stitches. Crochet stitches covers the basics you need to move on to more advanced stitch combinations.

How about felting? What is it? It's the process that wool or animal fiber goes through when subjected to heat, soap, agitation and pressure. Find out more about the different felting techniques available. Learn to felt wool by hand, or in your washing machine.

More information to peruse on your visit is my section on crafting for profit, if you're ready to make money from your wool crafting ventures.

Find details about different yarns, fibers and their characteristics, information about finishing your work well and much, much more.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions or if you'd like to submit an article to this site. I'd love to hear from you.

I do hope you enjoy your stay.
