Making Felt for King Winter's cloak

Winter Solstice is almost upon us, and my King Winter is, well...getting there...

Laying out the blue wool fleece, thinly, 3 layers in alternate directions.
Wet felting, using organic olive oil soap, tulle netting and very warm water.

 The hold up perhaps has been my uncertainty about his initial felt cloak.
Despite the blue and white, this piece has felt to me, like a beautiful ocean scene rather than a wintery coat.

Laid out fleece, 2 layers white and top layer in various colours.
Covering with tulle netting to protect layers while wet felting.

 But now, I have created (for me) the perfect piece of felt to recreate what I'm seeing here on the Sunshine Coast, this winter.
I am actually completely in love with what I have created this time around.

And it feels good!
