Felt process on Fashioning Felt (Turkmenistan)

Interesting images have been posted at the Fashioning Felt blog on the process of making felt.
The images have been taken in 2008 in Turkmenistan showing one of the oldest procedures on how to make felt rugs with moisture, heat, friction by wrapping the wool like if it was sushi and striking it repeatedly. The images talk for themselves, for now we will only post a link.
