I have a reputation for taking what others discard and these were made from a selection of wools that were given to me by Faye, from knitting. I suspect that the wool may be rug/carpet or some form of upholstery wool, it was quite coarse and scratchy and not suitable for scarves or items that would be in close contact with skin. There were a selection of brights and a little black and white. I had used up some of the wool when I had a request for wool that would suitable for children to weave so have since passed it on to a school. I like that materials are shared around and not wasted.
I make them in all different sizes and shapes, they are useful for a small craft project and make good containers in the bathroom and kitchen.
For some time now I have also been making the pots as a type of impermanent or biodegradable garden pot. The idea is that the pots will be tucked into the garden and will slowly breakdown as the plants grow up and around them. Until now they have been made of string and old rope or strips of fabric and muted in colour. These bright ones are new to me and certainly add a splash of colour in the garden.
This one had the dirt spilled over it as it was being planted. In a day or two it will dry and the dirt on the outside can be brushed off.
