THE PROCESS OF WET FELTING

Wet felting is one of several methods which can produce felt from the non-spun wool. In fact, it is one of the first handicrafts known and the ancient way of making fabric!

The warm soapy water is sprinkled to the layers of merino wool that are placed at angles to one another.

By repeatedly rubbing, touching and compressing the fibres, they bond together into a single organic piece.

As the raw wool and silk fibres are laid out by layers, the work shrinks and changes, creating an unpredictable feel and magic in the finished project.
