Felt is an ancient craft, dating back to the Bronze Age. It is the oldest textile fabric and was made before people learned to spin, weave or knit. Hand-made felt has an entirely different quality to the machine-made felt found in craft stores. It is a chunky, more hardwearing and can be made in a variety of designs and colors- it does not fray, so no sewing is required. And any crafter can learn the art of creating felt with a little fleece, water and soap.
