Whether used to make hats, slippers, blankets or jackets, felt is a wonderfully flexible, resistant, pliable and versatile medium for any crafter to use. It can appear in the subtle hues of natural fleece, or be dyed in rich, vibrant tints for extra impact.The warmth and water-resistance of the material has been appreciated for over 1,000 years, when fleece was dampened and rolled to make a thick, fibrous fabric for clothing and dwelling. Today, designers and craftspeople continue to be inspired by the material and its inherent qualities, and work within a range of styles and disciplines to create objects as diverse as accessories, clothing, hangings, sculptures and toys.
