The technique of wet felting has been practiced for thousands of years. Felting occurs when fiber is moist, alkaline, and physically agitated. The microscopic scales that cover the individual filaments of animal hair are responsible for the fiber's ability to felt together. In this lesson plan, tufts of fluffed wool are rubbed with soap and water to make a beautiful piece of felt. This process is very user-friendly. Requiring only water, soap, wool, and something to roll it in, the results are "high success," as students easily create a beautiful wool fiber masterpiece.
