Felt is a kind of cloth that has been around for a long time. In fact, people have been making felt longer than any other kind of fabric. Felt can be made in any size shape and color and is used to make many things like clothing hats and rugs. Nomadic people live in tents made of felt.
Here's a question that will be on the final exam so pay attention! What is the difference between Wool Felt and Felted Wool? Felt (a noun) is created by agitating fibers either by using barbed needles or by getting the fibers wet and tangling them into each other to make a non-woven fiber. To felt something (a verb) implies adding heat, water, and agitation to a pre-existing fabric, or for our purposes, a pre-spun yarn. This forces the fibers to lock making them less likely to loosen or u
umor has it that back in the way-back days, nomadic tribesmen found that the moisture, heat, and agitation caused by hard riding turned their saddle pads to a high-performance and longer lasting item and "felting" (the verb) was born.
