I never did understand the difference between "felted" and "fulled." A lot of fiber artists, myself included, refer to items as being felted - meaning they've knit or crocheted something then worked it with hot water, soap, and lots of agitation until it forms a tighter fabric of sorts. Technically, this process is called "fulling." The felting process generally uses the fibers themselves to make felt, not a spun, knitted, or crocheted piece.
The terms have become synonymous it seems. If I named a particular purse "Wool Fulled Handbag," most people would not know what I was talking about. But, call it a "Felted Wool Handbag" and your average customer would understand.
Here are some examples of some fabulously fulled items from petitelibellule.
Needle-felting is a technique in which the fibers are worked dry, with barbed needles. The fibers stick together to create a fabric, without the use of soap or water. Click on the photos for more information and to visit the shop of petitelibellule!
