Felting

Wet and dry felting. Wet felting interlocks and compacts wool fibres by using warm water, soap and rubbing and rolling motions. Needlefelting requires a special barbed felting needle and wool fibre to sculpt 3D felted figures.  The barbs catch the scales on the fibre and push them through the layers of wool, tangling and binding them together to create a shape. Combining wet and dry techniques is a great combination for adding detail and strength,
