Needle felting.wet felting and nuno felting are the some techniques of making felt. Needle felting uses barbed needles to stab and tangle the wool fibres together, and Nuno felting bonds wool fibres to a sheer fabric, usually silk to make a light weight felted fabric.
In the wet felting process, hot water is applied to layers of wool or wool yarns, while repeated agitation and compression causes the fibers to hook together or weave together into a single piece of fabric.
The story of felt was that a shepherd boy lined his sandals with wool to prevent his feet from getting cold. By the end of the day, when he removed his footwear he noticed that the wool had felted. Because he sweated, heated while he was walking. Today felt is popular as a craft.
