Gelawool

Alexandra Bell (Australia), Angela Muñoz Correa (Colombia), Carolin Winandi (Germany), Francesca Queirolo (Chile).

It is a flexible non-stretch material. It has a smooth surface while also giving the illusion of a wool texture. It can be molded into different shapes and thicknesses. “Gelawool” can be created using a gelatin mixture, combined with any wool. These samples contain Alpaca wool.

The material offers a mouldable illusion of a wool texture and can utilize designated wool offcuts and waste. Brushing through the alpaca wool to separate strands is easy to obtain the fibers needed to create the material.
