Wet Felted Purse
These one-of-a-kind wet felted purses are handmade by Lakefield textile artist Christianna Ferguson.
Wet-felting is a process in which water and soap are applied to layers of wool fibre, and through slow, repeated agitation, the fibres lock together to create fabric. Each purse is seamless, and made with fine merino wool and silk which is incorporated to create the colourful surface designs. These small purses are designed to carry your wallet and keys and have an interior pocket for your phone. They have a leather strap and the closure is a locally-sourced wooden button
