i have a dilema. i just started felting and i got really excited and into it before i knew how it was done.
so for a project for school i decided to felt this big portrait thing.
Now my problem.
I bought a ton of crafting felt sheets.
Before I decided i was going to needle felt it... now i have all these sheets AND wool roving and was wonder if there is a way to unfelt those sheets into strands.
I dont care if they are messy. Or at least if there is a way to loosen the fibers and be able to pull it apart.
I started just tearing at it and i get small pieces, but is there an easier way???
or a technique i dont know about??

I don't think there is anyway to unfelt the sheets. Are they wool felt? What method do you plan on using to create your portrait? You can needle felt wool roving into felt sheets, and can even connect wool felt together with needle felting, though it takes a lot of work and fine needles.
