This rug has been hand-felted using the centuries-old wet felting technique.

The Clearwater Rug is inspired by a stone found near the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers in Northern Idaho.

Rug Felting!

Here is my latest project…a bit off the beaten path from my normal endeavors and slightly more of a workout…

Here is a photo journal of a wool rug I made using the traditional techniques of wet felting.

What is Wet Felting?

Wet Felting:

Continually rubbing wool fibers together with mild soap and warm water to form a firm felted object.


Tools for wet felting wool balls and other objects…

Any mild dish soap will do, I like Mrs. Meyers soap.

Hot water


A medium-large bowl, a towel (to catch the drips and dry your hands in between colors) and wool

With these simple tools and a good supply of wool you are ready to start wet felting! Here is a simple YouTube tutorial on Felted wool balls.
