About Felt

Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woollen fibres. Sumerian legend claims that the secret of felt making was discovered by Urnamman of Lagash. Legend tells of Saint Clement and Saint Christopher relates that while fleeing from persecution, the men packed their sandals with wool to prevent blisters. At the end of their journey, the movement and sweat had turned the wool into felt socks.
