From animal to article.

At shearing, each fleece is bagged separately, to be sorted and cleaned later. The fleece is turned onto a mesh table to pick out all the vegetable matter,then the best of the fleece is chosen.

The next stage is carding where small handfuls are fed and brushed onto a roller covered in pins. This stretches and lines up the fiber making it easier to spin.

To make one ball of wool, two bobbins must be spun, then twined together using the spinning wheel in the other direction.

Felting requires elbow grease. The fleece is carded first, then small handfuls are rubbed onto a flat surface using hot water and detergent. Keep adding fleece until the desired thickness is reached.It can be whatever size is needed. The felted bags are felted onto doilies so the doilies becomes the lining.

This tecnique is called noono felting.
