Felt

Natural felt is made from wool that is matted using friction, heat, soap and water, often described as wet felting. It is one of the earliest techniques for making textiles believed to be in use for more than 8,000 years. Nuno felt is a contemporary technique of felting (or fusing) wool to a woven or knit fabric. The result is a fabric that is lighter and more airy than traditional wool felt.
