nunofelting | the technique

To create a nunofelt fabric you need top quality raw materials.

The technique of nunofelting is not particularly difficult but it requires great patience, and the final result always depends on the sensibility and the taste of the person using the technique. Top quality materials are not enough, you need to experiment and keep trying to refine the technique in order to keep improving the product. Since the technique is not carried out by machines but manually, the result will never be the same and for this reason the final product will be unique and unrepeatable.

The wool is placed on the fabric according to the desired design.

Other elements or fibres can be added to embellish the work.

You then need to wet the fibres with soapy water.
