I love Shetland wool for felting, because it is so very fine and soft. I felted many berets from Shetland wool sometimes combining it with soft and dyed merino wool.

That's one of the bigger Shetland wool berets I've felted.

In Autums 2012 I was asked to felt another giant Shetland wool beret 39cm in diameter. It was commissioned from a man in New Zealand, who collects berets from all over the world. This hand felted one was still missing in his collection. I love it, when the felted items, which I created, travel to different parts of the world and find new friends. There are 99+ different ways to wear this beret. This is what Daan, the owner of my second giant Shetland wool beret writes in his blog: http://beretandboina.blogspot.com/2012/10/shetland-skipper-beret.html

Here the female style to wear this giant beret
...and this could be the male way to wear the giant beret.

And a few month later in April 2013 somebody saw the giant Shetland wool beret on the beret project's blog and commissioned an even bigger beret with 48cm diameter! Here it is:

Just 5 weeks later I felted a beautiful red merino wool giant beret for the same person. Here it is:

I love felt making and even more nuno felting. The combination of an airy silk chiffon with sheep's wool is just amazing and inspiring.
