Traditional Felting Video

This is very inspirational. I better start stockpiling wool! It is 15 minutes long so be patient with the initial loading. Apparently this is one of the few remaining felt rug makers in Iran. Sadly, a dying art form.

Wow! I just watched it and it's amazing. I'd love to do something like that, but at the same time I can't believe how much energy was expended in the process. Thanks for the link.

There are a ton of resources with tutorials for starting out with felting- I am SO hooked!

I also rented videos - go to to website for technicalvideorentals.comn

In the arts and crafts section there AR e2 videos on felting that are worth renting if you want a good visual starter.

I have done booties as my first project - wow 3-d isn’t that hard!

About Me

Marin County, California, United States
I work for 2 non-profits in Marin County CA (near SF) that serve the Developmentally Delayed. I was introduced to weaving and knitting at a very young age. Over the years I have always had knitting on hand. There was a time where I was severely chastised for being so old fashioned, so it is great to see the upsurge in the home arts now going on! I have expanded into machine knitting; fortunately there is a great Guild nearby that has really been great. Spinning Fibers is a new thrust as well, and felting has creeped in too. If only I had more time...
