This blue felt bag is made by hand of fine and robust merino wool. It is pretty large and has a fabric with shiny threads nuno felted onto its front side. It is also finished with natural silk fibers, which makes it really eye-catching and unique. Notice, that silver threads may gradually fall away (like eg. glitter), but there is plenty of them – enough for a long time. As to the details, this blue shoulder bag has no seams, since it was hand felted around the template. It has a long strap made of strong felted ropes and it is lined with a blue cotton fabric with a zipper and one pocket. The lining was sewn into by hand to hide stitching.
In a word, this blue felt bag is beautiful and well-made. It is also one of a kind, so if you are looking for a bag that is not mass produced, you are in the right place. There is no way that anyone have a bag like you!

How to care about felted handicraftMerino does not need to be washed as often as other types of wool. However, you may want to refresh it from time to time. Felted accessories and jewelry keep their colors and shape if hand washed gently in warm water. Here is a detailed instruction on how to care about them (we enclose it in every shipment as well):
- Wash your felt handicraft manually at about 30 Celsjus degrees using washing agents for wool.
- Dip them gently, but do not rub - otherwise they may shrink or deform.
- After washing, rinse your felt item with water of the same temperature, preferably with a rinsing liquid for wool.
- Do not wring or twist felt - remove the excess water with your hands using a towel.
- Spread out washed accessories on a towel to let them dry.
- If necessary iron your felt item using 'wool' mode or applying a low temperature.

Take a look behind the scenes
This technique is pretty similar to wet felting but items you create are more lightweight. You can make nuno felt using silk, linen or other fabric with open weave – just remember to make a mess!
Wool yarn – if shaggy enough – can be interwoven with merino fibers. Since it fits in perfectly with felt, it is one of my most favourite decorations.
These small knots of wool are ephemeral and beautiful like a snowflakes. They are a perfect for handmade felt replacing glitter or sequins applied for other fabrics.
They are natural fibers collected from flax plants. Although they are thicker than silk fibers, they also look pretty cool on felted background.
