Setting up your workspaceStep 1: Lay your towel out on your work space - I recommend doubling it up, there will be sudsy water squishing around and you'll want clean up to be somewhat easy. Now add a layer of plastic wrap. If you want a felted piece bigger than the plastic sheet just overlap a few sheets of the plastic wrap. Make sure you have enough plastic wrap to fold over your planned felt size. Keep in mind that the felting process will reduce the size of the raw fiber to felted fiber by about 30% (remember that sweater? shrinkage will occur).

The puffy layersStep 2: Take your combed wool and start adding your layers. Layer 1 will start in one direction and following layers will be placed 90 degrees to the previous layer. The amount of layers you add will depend on the thickness of the felt you need. Thicker felt = more layers. The photos show two really thick layers. You may want to start with four thin layers if this is your first project.
