Having a couple of friends here in Australia that do some amazing felting I was interested to see the kind of felting they do in south africa. Here is a couple of pieces I found.
We were in the lovely little town of Franschhoek when we came across these Felted cushions made to look like river stones, in one of the many galleries in this artistic little town.

I thought this felting was so beautiful and natural.
The tones are lovely and soft.
