*Starred Review* Like most textile crafts, felting has great appeal, not only because of its tactile sensibilities but also because it gives crafters wide room for creative designs. White offers background on the history of felting in various cultures and useful information on wools and other materials while still getting to the knitty-gritty of how to make things. Starting out with a description of materials and tools, prep work, and the basic techniques, the book then transitions quickly and easily into beginner-level projects before getting progressively more advanced, running the gamut from apparel to art pieces. White’s expertise really shows through in the project instructions, providing small sidebars on variations of technique or practical descriptions and the reasoning behind the processes involved. Interspersed throughout the book are profiles of different felt artists that illustrate the scope of the limitless possibilities of felting. The photos are great, showing the finished pieces along with the steps in the process so you can see what your hands should be doing. Recommend to experienced crafters but also as a great resource for those just getting into felting. --Tina Coleman
