The technique of nuno felt involves the entangling or binding of wool
fibers with a woven structure. This process involves heat and friction.
The basic technique requires only water, soap and a pair of hands. Nuno
Nouveau by Liz Clay teaches techniques which involve simple
processes using household equipment. The skills required are not demanding
and, with practice and creative planning, the student's only restriction
is her own imagination.
