Wet felting is a technique where wool fibers when wet and agitated become a material that can be sculpted, shaped, twisted, combined and formed to anything imaginable shape- a coat, felting-beads jewelry, vessel, hat, figure and the list goes on....
Felting can be created using the wet felting method or using needles/individual or multiple called needle or dry felting. Intricate designs are "painted" on using the barbed needles and fiber or yarn. There are large felting machines that make large pieces of felting that is done dry, quickly and of course easier as a machine does the work.
Another exciting method of felting is NUNO felting which combines wool fiber with sheer fabric, preferably silk. Using the wet method, a innovative texture immerges and color and materials give the artwork character that only the hand can create.
