Felted Knit

AW2017 collection
felted1
Red one is felted and black one is just knitted.

Boucle yarn with wool blend is first knitted to simple jersey, then wash and heat to felt it. After felting, flare is born at the edge of the knitted fabric because it finishes as it is without extra

In order to make use of that flare, I use the fabric from the right to the left unlike the direction from the bottom to the top like a normal knit.

Selvedge of Felted Knit

Since the hem uses the knitting end of the knit as it is, it finishes smoothly like a piece of mold. By wearing, coat gets a tension on the shoulder part, the skirt takes a tension around the thigh, then the drape at the hem will come out beautifully.
