We explored the qualities and properties of woollen fleece by using it for felting. We used a beach stone and some natural fleece with a strand of dyed coloured wool make it different and special. In pairs we worked at the fleece wrapped round the stone inside a bag with soapy water. We had to keep it moving for a long time before the fibres started to stick together to become fabric.
While we were doing this we thought about the adjectives which described what we noticed through our senses about the material as it went from dry and light to wet and heavy. We listed the verbs that described what we were doing too. It will take a while for the felted stones to dry.
