The article in the latest article about “felting fabrics” is all very interesting … but incorrect! What you are doing when you take a piece of existing fabric and shrink it is FULLING not FELTING.
Felting involves a whole lot more effort, skill and talent than taking a bit of cloth and throwing it in the washing machine a few times.
This is an ancient and respected craft, can we all stop devaluing it!
