Who can resist touching felt? Many of us will remember a felt board with animal-shaped pieces that were used to tell a story, but if you delve inside the fuzzy slipcover you will discover the long and diverse history of felt, ranging from fashion “Felt apron with underpants,” to more practical uses such as covering yurts in Mongolia to regulate temperatures in summer and winter. If I am ever in Mouzon, France, I will stop in to visit the felt museum. Fun Fact: Castlegar, B.C. held the first international felt conference in North America.
