Judy combines natural wool and other fibres using traditional hand rolling as well as needle felting to produce unique Tasmanian textile felt art pieces.
Animal fleece fibres are covered in tiny scales, similar to the scales found on a strand of human hair.
Wetting and soaping the fleece causes the scales to open, and repeated agitation and compression cause the fibres to hook together into a single piece of fabric, creating felt.
Judy also produces "Nuno" felt by using a fine woven cloth to apply wool fibres to.
As the wool shrinks it takes the cloth with it, resulting in a crinkle effect.
