SFS Shop: Fulling wool is now back in store.

We’re happy to share that we’ve replenished our inventory of fulling wool.

Designed by Hiroshi Murase of Suzusan and made of a loose weave, this wool fulls exceptionally well! Thanks to it’s radical shrinking ability, it can be used with a resist paste recipe to create dramatic effects and textures.

Shibori patterning or stencil application of fulling resist paste can achieve three-dimensional texture, or a play of transparency against opacity in a lace-like treatment. (If you’re a WSN Member, you can access Joy Boutrop’s ‘fulling recipe’ under the Recipes and Resources section in the Member Access portal.)

I am inspired by the transformative properties of working with wool cloth through the process of shrinking and dyeing.

Jean is known for her “signature coats”; her pieced and sewn, slashed, felted and dyed constructions have been exhibited throughout Western Europe, Japan and the United States. Be inspired by her beautiful woolen art-wear pieces here.
