Þæfingur / Felt
Í verkefninu leiða textílhönnuðurinn Ýrúrarí og Flétta saman hesta sína til að endurvinna ull sem safnast hjá fatasöfnun Rauða krossins, prjónaverksmiðjum og ullarframleiðendum á Íslandi sem ekki er farvegur fyrir hér á landi.

Felt is a collaboration between Flétta design studio and the textile designer Ýrúrarí where offcuts from Icelandic knitting factories are utilised. The work is made by using a needlefelting machine at the TextileLab in Blönduós using woolleftovers. Felt started in the summer of 2022 with experiments at the TextileLab where they developed a way of using wool that otherwise would be sent abroad for re-or downcycling. This is an ongoing project where the goal is to design a path for the offcuts here in Iceland.
