Felting, in the eye of the fiber arts purist, typically involves unspun wool/fleece that is turned into usable fabric by repeated stabbing with something known as a felting needle, which could double as a torture device.
Felting needes are very sharp, come in a variety of thicknesses/gauges, and have many barbs on them [sort of like a fish hook with lots of points ].
The current phase of his felting and experimenting involves taking hot water and agitation to a variety of fibers and blends, including silk and wool and mohair as well as combining non-felting yarns like cottons and man-mades with woolen fibers just for the texture of it all.

  Felt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to man. It predates weaving and knitting, although there is archaelogical evidence from the British museum that the first known thread was made by winding vegetable fibres on the thigh.
Felt is now widely used as a medium for expression in textile art as well as design, where it has significance as an ecological textile.
Felt is made by a process called wet felting, where the natural wool fibre is stimulated by friction and lubricated by moisture (usually water), and the fibres move at a 90 degree angle towards the friction source and then away again, in effect making little "tacking" stitches.

 Tangents fun'n'frenzy filled web site. This is about felt
Felt were altogether too artful to be accepted in eighties mass culture and the underground was where they were destined to stay.
It was a classic Felt record in that it was so unexpected, and in that it didn't even have Lawrence performing, aside from choosing the song titles, and it was a success if only because it pissed off the indiepop purists.
Ironically this was also the closest Felt ever came to recording a 'proper' or conventional rock record, as if to prove that they could have done it all along but had chosen not to.

 Felt (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After firmly establishing themselves on the indie scene, Felt recruited the services of Robin Guthrie as producer for their album, 'Ignite the Seven Cannons' which remains one of the group's most popular albums (although it apparently left Deebank unimpressed).
Guthrie's most notable influence is arguably heard in the single Primitive Painters, which offers the listener a Guthrie infused 'sonic cathedral of sound.' Felt are often cited as a major influence by Belle and Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch, as well as by American alternative rock group The Tyde.

 Felt (hardcover)
Felt is a fiercely imagined work, at once visceral and cerebral, by a poet of unremitting courage and linguistic intelligence.

 FElt FAQ
Felt is the simplest - it takes a FElt input file and spits back appropriate ASCII based (tabular or ASCII graphics) results depending on the problem type.
The only reason FElt cannot do more right from the start is partly because we don't have time and partly because it is very hard to keep everything simple, straightforward and intuitive if we support every different type of analysis and algorithm - especially because beyond the basics there are so many different possibilities.
FElt does offer a lot of basic support that would be useful in a broad class of finite element programs.

 Felt Needs: is ministering to conscious felt needs biblical - a way to open closed minds?
Felt needs can then be seen as a way in, a first step on the road.
It also fails to understand that the felt needs or perceived needs are at the conscious level of a person's mind while his real needs spiritual or otherwise – are usually at the subconscious level.
On the other hand, to understand and identify with a person's felt and perceived needs is a sure-fire way to guarantee that his mind will be open to what we have to say and will remain open as long as we offer hope to meet his needs.

 Felt
Stains On A Decade is the first Felt compilation to combine their Cherry Red and Creation releases, and the title emphasises Felt's paradox of being the quintessential eighties band in terms of existence (1980 - 1989) but musically never approaching the cursed "eighties band" cliché.
To promote the album, Felt embarked on a series of dates around the UK and Europe, one of which, at London's ULU in February 1987 (the first Felt gig I personally attended) appears in a new DVD A Declaration.
I saw Felt a dozen times in their last three years and feel incredibly fortunate to have witnessed a band whose work is now being revered and acclaimed by bands such as Saint Etienne, Death In Vegas, Belle & Sebastian and many others.

 Basic felting instructions for beginning felters.
Electric finish sanders can speed up felting, but should only be used with adequate precautions such as ground fault adaptors, rubber mat to stand on etc. Sop up any excess water from felt before using sander.
This agitation stage, provided by rolling the felt back and forth in the blind or the bubble wrap, causes the individual fibers to draw closer together, removing more of the air-pockets and tightening the felt.
As long as you pull the netting off each time you unroll the blind to change the direction of your felt (since it shrinks more in the direction in which you are rolling it), then you will keep the netting from adhering to the felt.

 'I'm the guy they used to call Deep Throat'
Felt spent more than 30 years at the FBI, a protege of its legendary director, J. Edgar Hoover, and was bitterly disappointed after Hoover's death in May 1972, a month before the Watergate break-in, that Nixon went outside the agency for a new chief.
But much of the most serious and informed speculation has long centered on the FBI and on Felt, who was convicted in 1980 of authorizing government agents to break into homes secretly and without search warrants in a search for anti-Vietnam war bombing suspects from the radical Weather Underground in 1972 and 1973.
