8. Felted wool is amazing stuff

and not a bit like the craft "felt" you find in stores. It doesn't budge, at all, and while it will tear if it's thin enough, you have to apply considerable strength to do it. I would reinforce a bag's strap with fine wire only to keep it from being cut by a thief. I wouldn't want to lose my spindle and wool, which is what would be inside it.

It would be interesting to felt something on purpose, anyway.
