"Volutidae : Paramoria guntheri #2, distribution Southern Australia, merino, mohair and silk chiffon hand felted kerchief (52 x 49cms).

The original I made of this kerchief was entered in to the Royal Canberra Show and then sold at the Rapt in Felt Exhibition of the Canberra Region Feltmakers earlier this year.

A friend requested another. So here is version #2, incorporating a border of floating silk to represent the foot of the Hydatina Hydatis sea snail, transformed into a swimming organ.

Thanks, Matt. The possibilities of wool and fabric together are endless!
