Felting / Wool Crafts

I paint watercolours, fish, scuba-dive and can amuse myself for hours doing small repairs to my boat. My wife enjoys felting, a hobby which does not automatically spring to mind as one of the top ten hobbies for liveaboards. Does any one out there (a) felt on board (while moored up) (b) do any other wool related crafts, and if so, how do you keep the wood from getting damp?

This caught my eye While I am not very good at it yet, I you can probably count me as the other person who lives aboard and has a felting hobby. Keeping the wool dry has never been a problem. I just store the wool roving in a zip lock bag (with the air squeezed out) and put it somewhere dry on the boat, where it won't be against an outside wall.

I also keep little baskets from the dollar store with roving scraps for my son to work with out and about. Tell your wife to contact me and / or check out our blog and she'll see wool crafting aboard in action.
