Felting natural fibers has become a very popular fiber art and Suri works wonderfully for felting. There are two general types of felting. Wet felting uses water, soap, and agitation to get the fibers to entangle and compress against one another into a permanent structure. Needle felting uses barbed needles to push fibers into each other without moisture. Both will be discussed here.
Regardless of what is being constructed, the method requires moisture (usually warm), soap to allow the fibers to slide over one another, and agitation. There are multiple videos online that demonstrate different techniques and there is more than one way to achieve the same result. For instance, a scarf can be made using just ones hands and some bubble wrap and rolling back and forth to end up with a wearable piece of art. Or, the fiber can be laid down, wetted, covered with netting or bubble wrap, and a battery sander (without sandpaper) can be run over it to agitate and meld the fibers together. Yet another method is to use a felting machine where the entire piece is either rolled up and agitated or laid flat under metal plates with a textured surface and agitated to create a scarf. There are several different felting machines on the market.
Three dimensional pieces such as a dryer ball can be made from layers of fiber formed into a ball, wetted, and agitated between the palms of your hands, or you can place the ball shaped mass of fiber in a stocking, tie it in place with a knot in the stocking and throw it into the washing machine and dryer.
To provide some structure and predictability to a piece, the Suri can be felted onto a piece of silk. The video above shows a couture designer making felted gowns using this technique.
Used individually, the felting needle can help sculpt fiber into three dimensional art forms or it can be used to applique fiber onto another fabric surface. Again, there are some wonderful videos online that demonstrate techniques to achieve some amazing sculptures. Suri fiber is a wonderful medium for this because of the natural colors it comes in and also because it can be dyed into other colors to accent your creations.
Needle felting can also be used to create fiber "paintings".
