What is Nuno Felting?  It is the technique of layering very small amounts of wool onto a woven fabric.  The base fabric is usually silk or cotton.  Through the felting process, the wool fiber migrates through the fabric. As the normal shrinkage from the felting process takes place, the fabric is pulled, creating unique textures in the product.  This process is also called "laminated felt"
