Did you know you could make felt, this colorful, warm, soft and cozy fabric, with soap, water and a little bit of patience?
This is an ancestral technique! Thousands and thousands of years ago, as wool from sheep was placed around the feet and under saddles for protection, comfort and warmth, the moisture from the sweat coupled with the friction and heat from movement resulted in the first felt!
Today, nomadic people in central Asia, Siberia and China still make their movable tents, yurts, from felt.
And you? You will create from this fabric very useful or decorative things! No matter how experienced you are at crafts, and regardless of your level of creativity, it is difficult to go wrong... Felt is extremely forgiving for beginners!
