Volnena koprena (filcana) - Wooly cobweb (felted)

Sestri sem za rojstni dan hotela narediti nekaj posebnega, pa sem se - prvič - lotila filcanja čisto tankega kosa - koprene. Naredila sem dvobarvno in še rožico s tretjo barvo, ki sem jo nato izvezla z volneno prejo v isti barvi. Darilo sem zapakirala v to kopreno kot v celofan, samo da se je koprena lepo ulegla navzdol, ker je zelo mehka. Sestri je bilo všeč darilo in embalaža, meni je koprena zelo všeč in jih bom naredila še nekaj v podobnih pastelnih barvah. I wanted to make something special for my sister's birthday so I decided on a cobweb - my first cobweb. I made it in two colours, using a third colour for the small flower that I then stitched with a wool yarn in the same colour. I packed the gift in the cobweb as if it were a sheet of cellophane only it bended downwards as it is very soft. My sister liked both the gift and the wrap, I like the cobweb very much so I'm going to make some more in similar pastel colours. Rožica - da se vidi, da je res filcana z drugo (pravzaprav s tretjo) barvo volne. Detail - the flower - to show it is really made with wool in a different colour.

ladka, this is beautiful, so delicate, the colours- are they natural?

o čudovito si tole stkala.. tudi mene muči filcanje.. a se kar ne znam lotiti.. bom občudovala še naprej tvoje delo, lp

Manya, of course it is natural dyed. I "boast" of only using natural dyes, and only those I can either collect or grow where I live. The cobweb is really delicate although Slovene native sheep wool is medium coarse, not less than 30 microns.

Didi, filc ni stkan, ampak je česana volna (v tem stanju še najbolj podobna vati, ki je izvorno česan bombaž) obdelana z milnico in mehansko (gladenje, gnetenje, valjanje, stiskanje, metanje ipd), da se volnena vlakna med seboj prepletejo, nato pa še skrčijo v menjavi vroče in mrzle vode.

Saj ravno ta tehnika je tako privlačna: nič orodja (kolovrata, statev), nič dodatkov razen milnice in vode - pa kar "rata" nekaj tako nežnega in lepega!
Na tvojem blogu vidim, da si zelo ustvarjalna v več tehnikah, enkrat bo pa tudi filc prišel na vrsto!

Your cobweb is beautiful. I will have to try that when i have practiced a little more with nuno felt. Right now, i am working on a little piece that is all natural colours, I love it.
