Wool felting

Humans discovered the ability of wool to felt about 8,000 years ago. The found remains of animal fur were used for felting. After the domestication of small cattle, it became possible to use clipped animal fur. The first workshops for felt making were established in the 16th century. Rolling presses and rolling machines were invented only in the 19th century. Felting was made by compressing and rolling wool or by mechanical effect of special needles that entangled wool fibers.
