Textiles, such as these balls of felt, can be really effective in unlocking feelings and inner experiences. The felt balls can be unravelled, pulled apart, or knotted together. I remember the first time I came across them, it was like painting with a piece of cloud. Often people find them nurturing, will stroke them, and remark on how it reminds them of hair, mothers or children. They can activate our own need to nurture or to be nurtured.
