Me and Sustainability
The project that I created was a scarf which is made of leftover wool by using an old felting method, wet felting. The idea of this scarf is instead killing sheep, getting wool from them, this vegan, organic wool material was very sustainability and useful, as well as they were all leftovers that I used left from last semester textile class. First, I used the technique of wet felting to create felts in all nude colors, then I cut them to three pieces and I needled them together all used the oldest making methods. At last, it came to be a long felted scarf, which is double sustainable.
