New material for me

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!
