Selkie Skin - TF18.jpeg

Felt (1) 

A kind of cloth made by rolling and pressing wool or another suitable textile accompanied by the application of moisture or heat, which causes the constituent fibres to mat together to create a smooth surface.  - Oxford English Dictionaries (2018)

Something about the sea. 

                                                                        A general muddle of yearning and un-belonging. 
Heading north.

A selkie is a seal creature found from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, through the Faroes and up to the high arctic of the Nordic countries. The selkie sheds their skin on land to appear in a human likeness. Only by means of the skin may they return to the water.
