She describes the equipment, explores concepts and theories of felting, and thoroughly covers all felting techniques, including traditional, needle, three-dimensional seamless, nuno, cobweb, carved, and Beede ball.And then there are the projects — handsome, indestructible bags; nuno shawls that marry soft wool fibers and wispy silks; bright picnic blankets and plush bath mats; lacy curtains made with impossibly sheer cobweb felt.

THE ART OF FELTMAKING
by Anne Vickrey List Price: $24.95
I like books that are more than they seem. I thought this was just a children's project book using dyed and undyed bits of fleece and rudimentary felting techniques to make beads and figures. After a closer look, I started seeing the abundance of useful felting lore from around the world. After the simple children's work come the Swedish and Nomadic coats, boots, etc. All this information with nice color illustrations of articles and techniques will make teachers happy and wool artists inspired by this ancient craft.

WATERCOLOR FELT WORKBOOK
by Patricia Spark List Price: $29.00
This workbook is intended to help you learn the technique developed by Pat Spark, called "Watercolor Felt". Ms. Spark calls her method by this name because she uses concepts from painting, and applies those concepts to feltmaking. The result is felts that are visually similar to watercolors, but which are totally made of dyed fiber. There is no actual painting involved, unless you consider the placement of each individual colored fiber as "painting" with the fiber.
