Needle-felting, or dry felting, is the process of forming loose fibers, (most commonly wool) into three-dimensional sculpture. It is accomplished by repeatedly poking or jabbing the wool using special barbed needles.
The barbs on the needles catch the fibers of the wool and tangle them as you poke, which tightens and pulls the fibers together and causes them to hold the desired shape, resulting in soft and durable sculptures.
