Feltmaking is an ancient craft, dating back to Neolithic times. It was discovered long before knitting or weaving, making it the oldest textile fabric.

Handmade felt has an entirely different quality to the machine-made felt found in craft shops. It is often thicker, more hardwearing and can be made in a variety of designs and colours.

Felt is naturally insulating, water repellent and it does not fray, so sewing is not required unless you want to add detail to your projects. Felt is very easy to make and requires little specialist equipment - all you really need is wool fleece, water and soap, and a special needle if you want to try needle felting.

This exciting new book covers all aspects of felt making, starting with simple flat felt and felting hollow 3D shapes, moving through knitted felting, then onto needle felting and also some slightly more advanced techniques from cobweb felting to nuno felting to making felt slippers using shoe lasts.

Each technique is carefully explained in detail, with step-by-step instructions for basic techniques. The range of charming projects for each technique also have full instructions and step-by-step photography.

Make a delightful felt bag, a snug felt hat, or some cosy felt slippers, or choose another of the 25 projects in the book, that includes everything you need to bring the highly sought after handcrafted style of felt to your wardrobe and your home.

Forgiving in the extreme for beginners, and yet receptive, transformable, diverse and full of never ending possibilities for enthusiasts and experienced artists, making felt is one of the few things in life that rewards it's maker with a warm fuzzy feeling on the inside and the outside!
