Felt is one of the oldest ways to make fabric. It came to be used for all types of clothing, boots and even houses or Yurts. These tent like homes are still used today eastern Europe and Russia. To take advantage of the properties of wool, it becomes necessary to lay out a pattern 30-50% larger than the final product. By adding warm, soapy water, the wool fiber is carefully agitated, pushed, rolled and wiggled to get it to shrink down to the desired size and shape.
