Once my basic felted shape was strong enough, I took the resist out of the boot and put them on my feet. I finished the felting directly on my feet. When the felted forms were dryish I cut them along my shin to the top of my foot and removed them.
What is Mylar? Mylar is often used to generically refer to polyester film or plastic sheet. However, it is a registered trademark owned by Dupon Tejjin Films for a specific family of plastic sheet products made from the resin Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). The true generic term for this material is Polyester Film.

What does Corriedale mean?
The Corriedale sheep was developed in New Zealand as breeders attempted to improve the meat characteristics of the Merino by crossing with longwool breeds such as the Lincoln. The Corriedale was imported into Canada from New Zealand and for many years was a popular dual purpose breed. Its popularity has declined with the decline of the wool industry.

What is wool roving?
Wool roving is wool that has been sheared off of the sheep, washed and carded. Carding takes the clumps out of the wool and aligns it so that the fibres are all facing the right way. It is then ready for spinning, turning it into yarn, or to be felted.
