Felting: wet felting and dry felting

Felting: wet felting and dry felting: felting

If you are looking for a beautiful and creative hobby, you will often like felting. Disordered fibers of wool or other animal hairs are processed into a textile surface fabric.

You have to distinguish between dry felts and wet felts. Dry felting involves shaping the wool with special felting needles. When wet felting the unbound fleece made of wool or other animal hair is processed with warm water and soap for flexing felt.

Made of felt, you can make unusual garments, seasonal decorations and much more. We've put together a selection of interesting felt templates and guides so anyone can fool by themselves
