Wet-felting is the traditional way to felt, the oldest textile known to human history and still used in many cultures world-wide to create a strong, durable, and warm fabric. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and use a bit of muscle to create a pair of beautiful mittens for yourself or a friend using the updated version of traditional techniques.
