While at a farmers market in Eugene Oregon, I came across these little beauties.
When Pendleton Woolen Mill creates their blankets they shave the extra nubby bits off for a smooth finish. The lady I purchased them from dyes them in these beautiful colors. Apparently they have a name too, noil.
My first use for them was in a scrapbooking project.
This layout is pretty harsh and I wanted to add an organic element to hopefully soften it.
Look for all those little nuggets around you and don't be afraid to add them to your work!
