"As the agitation of a grain of sand in an oyster creates a pearl,
so too the agitation of wool fibers into silk fabric creates nuno felt,
a beautifully textured thin lightweight drapable fabric."
Nuno felting is also called laminated felting. In nuno felting, fibers are felted to a fabric. The fibers can be felted to one or both sides of the fabric, or the fibers can be sandwiched between two layers of fabric. In nuno felting, in the felting stage, the focus is to get the fibers to attach to the fabric (work their way through the weave of the fabric) and then begin to entangle. In nuno felting, in the fulling stage, when the fibers shrink a unique bubbly texture is created as the fabric is pulled in with the fibers. Nuno felting creates a beautifully textured thin lightweight drapable fabric with the wonderful qualities of the natural fibers used, typically silk and wool.
