4. That was totally fascinating.

I see why they use wool. It is long, and wavy, which helps it stick together in the mat. I have a scarf I bought on Etsy that used felting. It was not nearly as advanced and complicated as the wonderful art shown on the video, but it is soft, and I love it. It uses very thin felt made together with the sheer silk; part of it is just silk and sheer, other parts very finely felted. I have no idea how they did it; the process in the film used a layer of silk to roll and knead the felted mat, but then removed when completed, leaving only the wool mat.

That was very interesting; thanks for putting that on the blog.
