Stretch Lace

Last week I attempted to nuno some stretch lace which I bought at the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate last November. The lace was so beautiful I couldn’t resist although I was worried about how it would go. On the first attempt it went very badly. I later discovered that the net I’d covered the lace with was also stretchy so as I tried to felt it both fabrics were moving about!

I’ve had another go and prevailed this time. It’s so delicate and pretty.

If the lace wasn’t stretchy I’d buy a lot more as the designs and colours it was available in were delicious. It may have worked but I don’t really favour it for nuno felting. The wool is Flesh Merino and the decoration on the reverse is throwsters silk waste, both from Adelaide Walker.
