Wet Felting - by continually rubbing wool fibers together with mild soap and hot water, you are able to create a felted object. I use 100% wool yarn to crochet my object, and then into hot water in the washing machine agitating for up to 30 minutes until all the fibers felt together. The object usually looses about 1/3 of its size during this process - think about that wool sweater that accidentally ended up in the washing machine and you get the idea.
Needle Felting - also know as dry felting, is achieved by using very sharp barbed needles to poke loose pieces of wool into a dense mat. The loose wool is easy to manipulate to create beautiful patterns and objects. Some of my favorite projects are needle felting acorns, Easter eggs and Christmas ornaments.
