Sibel Wool Breeds Study

On April 13 2023 during IFA US Feltmakers Sub-Region 18 zoom meeting, we had a wonderful dive into various wool breeds and their properties when wet felting. Sibel Adali shared her wide repertoire of mini felted bowls and how they felted up differently depending on the breed of wool used.

Sibel shares her journey into sampling various wool breeds and seeing how they work up in mini bowls.


This series of conversations was hosted by former IFA chairperson, Lesley Bossine.

On Saturday 27 March, we had an interview with Annemie Koenen and Ariane Mariane, feltmakers whose practice has changed considerably over the past year.
