Wool lace? What's that? Well it's very fine cobweb felt that is indeed lacy and sheer. It's as light as a feather but surprisingly warm! You'd think (or at least I did) that laying out a very fine layer of wool would be a breeze, but I found it considerably harder than laying out the wool thickly.
I succeeded in these two scarves, both made from the same blended merino batt (different colors of merino wool roving blended and carded with other fibers). I also added extra silk fibers, yarn and wool locks (the wool as it comes off the sheep, before processing).
As always, if you're not able to purchase these in person, I'd be glad to create a similar piece for you!

African Art in Cary
This month we invite you to join us for an evening of wine, food, fun, laughter and art by our family of artists and music by the awesome jazz guitarist Heath Tuttle.
This presentation of African Art will be a departure from how you have experienced art at our gallery in the past. Emmanuel Nzeza Delay’s work has never been shown in the US and it is really quite exciting. His mediums include pastels, acrylics, gouaches and some primitive art. He is a trained artist and teacher who has come to America to try to make it as an artist.
One of our values at Waverly Artists is to help others and to expose our community to beauty. We believe you will find that his range of work is amazing, including figurative, animals, story and landscape.
Why is this an unusual show for WAG? We always have our work displayed in gallery ready presentation. That will not be the case this time. Emmanuel is trying to sell work to get started and he cannot invest in framing. For you as our friends this will be a unique opportunity to see some very original art, at prices that are far below his South African market price. It will be chance to give someone a start.
302 Colonnades Way, Suite 209.
At Waverly Place Shopping Center (corner of Tryon and Kildaire Farm Rd), behind the flag poles.
New Work by Kimberly Alvis and Bettina Lewicki
Alvis will be showcasing her new paintings inspired by her recent trip to Viet Nam, Cambodia and Laos. Lewicki will be showing her naturalistic paintings. Both artists are classically trained and bring all their talent and experience to their art.
