How to Make Wool Felt

Felt-maker Bonita from Feltilicious presents a marvelous video on hand-crafting felt from wool roving. This amazing painstaking process involves multiple pressings, and ends with shocking the fledgling felt with hot water, then cold water, then lastly by beating it. This would be a terrific Sunday afternoon group craft project. FYI: You can find wool roving on Britex Fabrics’ 3rd floor.
