This ladder bracelet is made out of long felted dreadlock. I make the dreadlock by hand in felting technique and then cut it into pieces to obtain nice felt beads. Beads are quite long, so the cuff is pretty wide and has a beautiful ethnic style. Each bead consists of superfine merino wool and that makes this bracelet friendly to the skin and very nice in touch. At the same time it is very lightweight, so you will barely feel it on your wrist. The best thing about this cuff is that you can choose its color by yourself!
The design of this ladder bracelet is really unique. It has a nice African look and will attract attention every time you wear it. Its style strongly depends on the color you choose. Look at my color chart and adjust this bracelet to your own personality. You can also select your own hand size to make this bracelet a perfect match with your wrist. Just in case the cuff you ordered is too small, I attach a few centimeters of jewelry chain. Fasten the clasp to one of its links to make this bracelet more loose.
Width of the cuff: 5 cm (2 in)
Bracelet weight: 15 g (0.03 lb)
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
Pieces of natural silk fabric make my scarves more lightweight and balanced. They also add a hint of uniqueness to some of my necklaces and brooches.
They are natural fibers collected from flax plants. Although they are thicker than silk fibers, they also look pretty cool on felted background.
Take a deep breath before you take it in your hand. With its hooked barbs felting needle is a smart and dangerous tool for tangling fibers in the most laborious possible way.
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!
