Free Printable Instructions for Nuno Felting


What is Nuno Felting?

Nuno felting is a way of entangling layers of roving through a woven fabric base. Nuno felting requires less wool than other kinds of wet felting, and produces a lighter, more supple finished project.

You can use any open weave fabric, though if you want a supple, drapey finished piece, you want something light and sheer, woven with very fine thread. Your kit includes silk gauze, but you could also use cotton gauze or cheese cloth.

You can use any kind of un-spun fiber that felts. Just make sure the fineness of the weave of your woven base and the fineness of your fiber work together. The finer your woven base, the finer your fiber needs to be.
