My first stool is starting to take shape, I knitted a background using a fine pure wool and then felted it slightly to make attaching it to the stool easier. I then dyed the background using yellow and turquoise acid dyes using pipets to paint the dye on. Rather than using the traditional method of boiling the wool in dye I steamed it instead which fixed the dye once I had finished. I love this method because it allows me to be more creative with the dying process as opposed to being restricted to one colour.
