There are several ways to felt wool, the most common being needle felting and wet felting. We stock a selection of fibres and tools for both needle and wet felting, as well as blending tools for creating custom art wool bats.
One of the oldest manmade fabrics discovered by humans, felting is the process of separating and re-locking the fibres in wool. Historians believe that felting was discovered by accident by Mongolian Horseback riders when wool fleece was used to protect the back of a horse from the riders saddle. The process of heat, sweat and friction caused the fibres to compact down into a very sturdy fibre.
