From issue 12

You will need the following items: * Merino Wool * Bubble Wrap (3 meter long) * Soap * Water * Glove Pattern (fig.6) * Thread – Scissors – needle * Addictional decorations (red lace)

Take the bubble wrap and fold in half with the flat surfaces together. The bubbles should be in contact with the wool. Take the wool and tear it and make a large rectangle, at least 35cm x 80cm Make at least 3 layers, alternating the direction of the wool in each layer.

Make one layer horizontal and one layer vertical. On the last layer the layering of the wool can be mixed. Pour soap and water gently on your wool and wrap it. Roll it gently at the start, then harder at the end for at least 5 minutes (change the direction of the felt every 2 mins). Check if there’s enough soap in your wrap: The soap should ooze from the edges when you are rolling it.

Now for the fun part! Once the felt is thick and strong enough you can slam it with force in a sink for at least 5 mins, then leave to dry. Next, copy out the pattern and cut your felt leaving 1 cm sewing space (N.B. The pattern is half of one glove!). Repeat this process 4 times then sew them together, then you can add extra decoration if required.
