Traditional felt is created by tangling fibres, wetted with soapy water, until they mat together to form a fabric. The fibres can be laid flat on a surface or molded around a former such as a hatshaper or bubble wrapped cardboard. Felting needles can be used to attach fibres to the surface of felt or to sculpt fibres into 3d shapes. The barbs along the length of the needle hook the fibres back on each other causing them to tangle. All sorts of fibres can be felted effectively with this method
