molo felt rocks

at a glance these look like river stones or marshmallows, but they’re actually pure wool felt rocks from canada’s molo design. they’re a natural byproduct of making polishing wheels for optical lenses. they form by being tumbled together in a big drum filled with steam and pressure.

    Very modern… I like it. These are used to polishing?

    hi myspace,

    yes, they are very modern.

    when polishing wheels are made for optical lenses, little bits of wool fall off and and are tumbled together to make these bigger pieces of “rock.” pretty cool, huh?

    thanks for the visit!

    i want to touch them. and i want them big enough to sit on. don’t you think they would make lovely benches?

    what a cool chair to have in your enormous loft apartment (if they made a chair).

    and I think a bench would be so cool too!
