Snow Yeti Ornament

Bigfoot Yeti is handcrafted from cotton and wool felt in the foothills of Himalayas. Felt refers to non-woven fabric formed when wool fibers lock together under heat, moisture and pressure. This bonding of fibers is called felting. Association for Craft Producers has been at the forefront of reviving this traditional skill in Nepal. Felt making likely began in Asia. It is an important folk tradition in Nepal, where people living in mountainous regions made felt carpets.
