Mongolian felt making film (with a pony!)

We have finally done it -made a piece of felt Mongolian style using a pony! We think this is the first time this has been done in the UK, as we have not heard of anyone else trying it. Mongolian felting in Scotland is definitely a first! Thanks to Ian and Sasha and their family, as well as Nutmeg the pony. We managed to put this film together to show you what we did. We have tried it twice now and it has worked well. Last Sunday we made another felt wall hanging at the Cannich craft day, with a whole croud of people watching. Ian spent two hours riding Nutmeg around the field, something you might not have guessed from our film, which makes it all look very quick. Please try this at home and let us know how you get on! If you are interested in having a go, we still have space on our Fleece to Felt week in July.
