Introduction

Welcome to the world of felting! Felting is a simple process that results in incredible looking items that hold their shape and style. We understand that it can be daunting to toss a lovingly knit item into the washing machine, so that's where we come in: we've experimented with just about every kind of yarn and knitting technique so you don't have to! With these projects, you will learn exactly when to pull an item out of the washer, what to do when something goes wrong, and how to shape your felted items.

Author Maggie PaceAbout the Author

In 2003, Maggie Pace discovered that one life-changing event can lead to another.

She was five months pregnant with her second child and working as an editor when she decided she was ready for a new career. She had just discovered felting.

"What I loved most about the technique was the transformation of the fibers," Maggie says. "A standard-looking hand knit wool item would shrink into a new textile that was stiff, yet soft to the touch. All the colors of a felted project blended together as if they had always been a single material." This, says Maggie, is when she knew she'd found her new work.

In the years that followed, Maggie's patterns found their way into several popular knitting magazines. She developed innovative ways to market her kits, such as putting them in restaurant take-out boxes or packaging them like flower bulbs.
