  • Understand the difference between a pre-felt, and fully felted piece
  • Understand how and why wool felts, and factors affecting different shrinkage rates
  • Understand that wool from different  sheep breeds can be felted and  will produce felt of differing qualities
  • Be able to pull wool and lay out finely and evenly
  • Be able to wet felt a sample square using the rolling technique
  • Be able to full a felt sample by tossing, scrunching and hand rolling, and options of using different tools such as washing boards.
