The process of felting wool is transformative . Heat ,friction ,pressure, and persistence bring, an already beautiful and useful substance ,strength .I am fascinated by this process ,it is so much like the human experience . The difference is that wool has no choice but to grow tighter and stronger when faced with the hardship of being boiled and pounded , but we as humans must choose to not be broken down by the pressures of life but to be made stronger and better . Wool is a beautiful natural fiber and felted wool is a stronger , more beautiful natural fiber .
