This one may end up going down to the Pittsworth Craft and fine Food Festival as well.
This time I didn't use the sander. In the first stages I covered the tops with an old lace curtain and partially felted with lots of soapy water checking the progress by lifting the curtain often. I found that the very soapy water allowed me to float the fibres into a lacy position as I went. I then covered the scarf with a clear plastic sheet and felted by hand. I could see what was happening easily through the plastic and every now and then lifted the plastic and gently stretched the the scarf back into shape....helping the web to open.
|Fully stretched - I repeated this felt|
and stretch process until the scarf was fully
Notice how wide the scarf was stretched.
