Usually books that try to do to much fail drastically but I have to say this is the exception. Part encyclopedia, part how-to, part art book, part resource list, part project book, this book has everything you ever wanted to know about how to create felt from scratch. (This is not a book in the technique knitters call felting which is really called "fulling.")

I enjoyed the book so much I found myself reading everything, not just skimming through projects. If I had money to start a new hobby righ

An amazing resource on felting and all its possibilities, starting with some of the simplest projects (such as cording and prefelts) and working up to much more challenging ones (including hats, rugs and large seamless garments). Each project includes detailed instructions and tons of useful tips, with a focus on learning how to "listen" to the wool every step of the way and adjust your technique to reflect your unique relationship with the fibers. I'm both inspired and, yeah, a little bit intim ...more

The amount of information in this beautiful,comprehensive anddetailed book could easily make three craft books. It starts from the most basic beginner concepts with descriptions of many tools and techniques and heads off afterward into the most inventive couture fashions! Amazing book, I am totally scared now of even starting, Way whelmed as my family says (that's beyond overwhelmed!) However, I highly recommend to all my artsy and craftsy friends!

This book was full of info to get even the biggest novice felting like a pro! I love that it started out with cording as that was one of the primary things I want to do. The projects continue to grow with skill level, so more experienced felting crafters will still find ways to grow their art with this book. Of all the felt books I've gotten from the library so far, this is the only one I will search the used book stores for!

A great reference for felting with unspun fiber. Doesn't cover felting knitted objects, which is what I do. Still has some good info on what fibers felt and some nice pattern ideas, particularly hat shapes, that could be adapted to knitted felt projects. Made me want to try felting from unspun fiber. Hmmm... may have to buy some fiber at OFFF later this month and give it a try.

Lots of great research: sheep breeds, many techniques, even Bronze Age felt. I gave it 5 stars mainly for the charts on the different sheep breeds: characteristics of the wool, what kind of yarn & felt it makes, the best way to use it, etc.

Extremely good how-to guide. I found almost every design in this book rather horrible and inexcusably hippie-ish, but the explanations of how to felt in different techniques are amazingly well detailed and documented with graphics and instructions to every single step.

Very serviceable how-to book with great explanation of felting, fulling, and all the varieties of the two. I was even tempted to try some of the projects, though I'll just get instructions on the internet rather than having to own another craft book.

A good resource on felting and all its possibilities, with good explanations, but without much understanding about useful applications of these techniques.

The book is great on techniques but gets no point for inspiration.

i was somewhat disappointed with this book. it is fairly thorough but the projects aren't overly inspiring. still, it is a good jumping off point if you are interested in learning to felt.
