First of all, I know nothing of felting, being more of a spinner and knitter myself, but I do visit this board ever once in a while to look at the beautiful projects here, so I would like to apologize in advance if I use the wrong terms for things.
A friend of mine would like to try his hand at wet felting. Now, he's got plenty of access to raw fleece (he goes to a local farm where he can shear a sheep and take the fleece home for free, you can imagine my delight as a spinner), but no drum carder or anything like that (unfortunately I don't have one either).
Question is, can you make felt out of a fresh, raw fleece? How would you go about that? Or do you really need prepared roving or batts for this?
Thanks in advance!
