Well, it's cool... but I don't really understand the process. You pull all the wool lose, lay it on top of unprocessed wool, make it wet and then it just bonds?

It is described in more detail in the video description, and also i have another video on the topic with instructions in the captions/subtitles: youtu.be/BPa7zXkx3Z0
But myeas, I had a sheep wool fleece, meaning its been sheared from the sheep in one go so its still pretty intact. I put that upside down and then put carded wool on top of what, then used warm water and soap to felt it. That's basically it.

Ah yes. That subtitle was useful. (I keep thinking you're from Eastern Europe.) It's still pretty amazing how the alpaca wool and sheep's wool "bond" like that, even though a few patches didn't.
Is this something they used to do centuries ago?
