Using merino tops wool, pull small tufts and layer them onto a piece of bubblewrap - horizontally, then vertically, then horizontally again.
Place a piece of net on top. Wet slightly and rub on household soap. Move hands gently in a circular motion. After a few minutes, the wool will begin to felt. You may need to continue, or turn the wool over. Rinse the felt. Then dip into hot then cold water.
Roll in a sushi mat for 1 minute, then rotate 90 degrees and repeat - the felt will shrink. Rinse again, repeat as necessary until happy with size.
