Crochet Quote: Felting

Today’s crochet quote is about felting. Like crochet, it’s a versatile craft with lots of options for the crafter. The quote is by Shannon Okey and comes from her book Felt Frenzy. There isn’t much mention of crochet in this book but there’s a wealth of information here about felting knit items which would apply to felting crochet items too.

“Felting, at its simplest, is an art and a science, the process of deliberately tangling and shrinking wool or other animal fibers. It’s as simple as that, but the possibilities of this very simple process are almost limitless. Felt can be hard and solid or soft and airy. It can be flat and formless or curvy and sculptural.”

Have you ever felted any of your crochet work?
