I have to admit I am now very intrigued to try felting wool with lace components.
My Mum is an antiques dealer (more of a collector now) but recently was very generous and gave me a huge portion of her lace collection. Some pieces are to precious to cut into so they will eventually go to a museum perhaps, but I have many sample bits of 30's lace which I like to incorporate into my couture designs. I like the idea of using vintage lace in some nuno felted scarves...
Very nice blog post Krishenka
What an amazing place you stayed at.
