Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by pressing woollen fibres. Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to humankind. It predates weaving and knitting, although there is archaeological evidence from the British Museum that the first known thread was made by winding vegetable fibres on the thigh.
Highly sophisticated felted artifacts were found preserved in permafrost in a tomb in Siberia and dated to 600 AD.
Many cultures have legends as to the origins of feltmaking. Somerian legend claims that the secret of feltmaking was discovered by Urnamman of Lagash. The story of Saint Clement and Saint Christopher relates that while fleeing from persecution, the men packed their sandals with wool to prevent blisters. At the end of their journey, the movement and sweat had turned the wool into felt socks.
The only natural material which can be made felt - it is wool, with the best wool. Wool Fibers have a flaky top layer-cuticle. Thanks to him, fibers can be coulped with each can be coupled with each other under the influence of hot water and steam. This principle is based felt-making.
In order to make felt, you do not need anything other than the human hand and wool. However, we still have a lot of work.
