Needlefelted Magnolias


Needlefelted Magnolias, originally uploaded by confections.

I just finished this custom order of needlefelted magnolia boutonnieres for an August wedding. The petals are made of Dorset down wool and yearling mohair from a local San Diego County shepherdess, the stamens of Rambouillet wool, and the leaves of domestic and merino wool that I blended with Bombyx morii silk.
