We LOVE Felting!

Blog, How-To's, Visual Arts / January 9, 2015

Sheep’s wool can be transformed into felt using the technique called wet felting. This process involves moisture, heat, and pressure. Warm soapy water makes the wool slippery, and causes the fibers to open up. With agitation and pressure the fibers get tangled together. After the excess water is squeezed out and the project is dried, the finished product is soft and durable much like felt bought at a craft store. By layering and arranging different colors of wool these children have created unique pictures.
