Nordic silk. Facing, 2018

By Erika Pedak

Wet felted. Unpainted Kihnu rural wool, painted local wool.

I like the natural unpainted wool of  Kihnu rural lambs. Similar to double-layer wool from Scandinavian and Nordic sheeps, where the base is soft and silky, but the top is tough. The overall impression is in the peasant fashion, not like an exquisite merino.

Unfortunately, the majority of Estonian sheep’s wool remain reimbursed.
