Felt options

So I went to Mill End to get some fabric & felt. I didn't love their selection so I started chatting with a felting "expert" about options. She wanted me to buy colorless wool roving & dye it myself with various vegetables... since I didn't feel that adventurous she suggested I just buy wool yarn (so much cheaper & so many color options). Maybe you all knew you could use wool yarn, but I didn't, so I thought I'd share. Maggie, do you have an opinion on using yarn?
(don't tell anyone but Byron's attempting to felt as I write this :)

The whole guitar is made from wool yarn. Tunez worked so diligently he wore out my styrofoam!
