8. Carefully remove the net, releasing any trapped fibres, then cover the resist and wool with the other piece of 70cm x 70cm piece of bubble-wrap, bubble side to the wool. You now have a ‘sandwich’ with bubble-wrap under and over the wool.
Gently push down to get a bit of a ‘seal’ and firmly grip the right-hand side of the bubble-wrap and wool ‘sandwich’ and flip it over east to west, supporting the resist as necessary with your left hand, so that the resist is now flipped over but the top and bottom of the resist are still the top and bottom.
Carefully remove the top layer of bubble-wrap, releasing any trapped fibres.
9. With wet, soapy fingers, wrap the wool fringe onto the resist – the edges should not be baggy.
10. Repeat steps 2 – 9 on this side of the resist. You will then have one layer of wool on each side of the resist.
11. Now you need to put one fringe and two layers of wool on this side of the resist. As before, lay a fringe of wool around the resist.
Cover the resist with rows of wool, but this time the fibres should run west to east (horizontally).
Then make a second layer of rows on top of the first, but with the fibres running north to south (vertically).
Repeat steps 6-9.
12. Repeat step 11. You now have 3 layers of wool either side of the resist.
