The girls washed a fine, rambouillet fleece and we carded it and I showed them how to lay out a fine, felt scarf. After quite a lot of hand felting they each had an embellished, light weight, soft scarf.

The girls also gathered some golden rod flowers and we dyed the scarves together with the golden rod extraction. The scarves were washed and dried in time to pack for the next trip. It was such a priviledge to meet Heike and Aki and to get to know them . What beautiful young ladies! They will succeed in life.
