ma2maya, I think you might be right, I haven't tried it but if a synthetic material has an open enough weave, the wool fibres would be able to work their way through to create a bond.

shsh, thanks!

Yeah...I can't remember where I read about the use of synthetic fabrics as the base weave. I possibly inferred it from Zia's Web site and its gallery of her pieces. She had one or two with a polyester base weave.

I also don't think it would make a difference if the base weave was synthetic or natural because either would bond to the wool through the felting action of the wool to itself through the loose weave.

me_and_a_gun, I agree on the pain in the back.  Our teacher had us stand in almost a yoga down-dog to do ours.  I felt like going through the whole sun salutation afterwards instead!

lynnidings, where did you take your class? Mine was at Halcyon Yarn in Bath, Maine.  I'd be interested to know if more classes are being taught around the country.

Check out my hand-dyed fiber!

JoyousBohemian, I took my class in Surrey, England, so that's probably not helpful. I used to live in NYC and I think that The Yarn Tree in Brooklyn and Make Workshop on the Lower East Side have classes in feltmaking.

me_and_a_gun18, I totally agree, Nuno is a big pain in the back. It takes so much longer than regular felting.
