“Maggy Pavlou fuses fabric in alchemy of wool and water. Inside her second-story Los Alamos studio, a whisper-soft cloak of merino wool hugs a dress form, rows of holes honeycombing the hemline.  The Austrian-born Pavlou turned to wearable art after leaving a longtime career in retail management. She had picked up sewing and knitting in grade school in Graz, Austria’s second-largest city, but never took either craft seriously. Three years ago, a friend gave her some hand-dyed wool roving to play with and she decided to felt it, flattening the fibers with hot, soapy water and rubbing them with her hands to prompt the scales in the wool hairs to interlock.”

Maggy Pavlou was given the Fiberarts Magazine Award for her Cactus Series Coat with Scarf during the 14th Annual ArtWear Fashion Week at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado, a benefit for the center's visual-arts program. This award is given to an artist whose work complements the aesthetic direction and mission of the magazine.
Outback Fibers Felting Fabric is needled prefelt wool batts imported from Australia. This felting fabric is the most innovative product on the market and is made from Extrafine Merino (20 microns) finely needled into pre-felt yardage, approximately 60" wide and 80" long, yet weighing only a few ounces. It is so sheer, one can see through it.
