Today’s book is actually more of a booklet – The Felt Industry by Peter Walter
It’s an A5 booklet packed full of information on the felt industry. This is not a book for those looking for instruction on how to make felt or those looking for design inspiration. Rather, it’s a book for those interested in knowing a little more about where felt came from, how it was made – all the processes it goes through from fleece to fibre to cloth, where the mills were in the UK and some of the many products it’s been used for.
It’s not an in depth look but it’s jolly useful in explaining quite a lot about felt in a short space so definitely one I’ll be keeping. I’m sure people who come to my workshops and are new to felting will find it very interesting too.
