Wool felt, which is made of wool, is the oldest form of fabric in recorded human history. Its history can trace back to more than eight thousand years. This kind of non-woven fabric was used by human beings long before the technology of weaving and knitting.
Wool felt is the product of wool “felting”. The seemingly soft-looking wool is covered with many textures that cannot be seen by our eye. After being squeezed and rubbed, they are entangled with each other tightly. This process is called felting.
The discovery of felting began with an interesting story about a western merchant dealing with shoes and hats businesses. During the time of escaping from the enemy, he found some wool in the woods. In order to alleviate his pain, he collected the wool to wrapp his feet, then put on his shoes and continued to run. When he arrived at the a safe place, he noticed that he had made a pair of felt shoes unintentionally.
Embroidery, one of the traditional Chinese folk handicrafts, will be combined with the wool felt in this workshop. What will happen? This course will take you to find it out.
