Let's begin with a comprehensive guide...
|The Complete Photo Guide to Felting|
Now, if you'd like to try 3D felting the next two books are worth a peek.
|Little Needle-Felt Animals|
|Art in Felt & Stitch|
AJE Contributor, Jenny Davies-Reazor is also a fan of this book and had this to say about it:
"This book I purchased a year or so ago - I believe Lesley introduced me to this Scottish artist? Stunning. Mind blowing. Gorgeous work - tapestry style... and by that I mean "paintings" in fiber. This book is a treat for the eyes, and very inspirational. While my fiber paintings are no where near Moy's in any fashion - this is how I like to use felt - as painting. And then of course I want to bead it too!"
|Felt to Stitch|
"This was the first felting book I ever purchased and It has held me in good stead. I wanted to learn to wet felt - both "canvas/paintings" and shaped pieces. The diagrams and directions are clear and informative. In fact - that section of the book is waterlogged from having open while felting! The book goes into Shibori and nuno and other more complex forms I haven't experimented with... yet. But see? One book and every time I dive in there is so much more to learn."
In addition to the many books on the market, you can find some fantastic felting videos online. Here's a few places I recommend:
