This is a collection of 10 different shades of woolly fibres that you can use for creating interesting landscapes, shadows, clouds, foliage and trees. Use woolly fibres instead of stitches to quickly create an interesting dimension in your design. Couch the fibre in place here and there with a matching thread and tiny stay stitches. Gently pull the fibre over the stitch to cover it where necessary, or create more dimension by adding French knots or lazy daisy stitch on top.
♥ Woolly fibres can be stitched onto a background for a feathery texture. Makes lovely trees, clouds or backgrounds.
