In textile industry of 21st century, to develop materials and designs in fashion industry is being recognized widely as an urgent problem. In other words, the reality is that we must offer scarcity value and unique materials, and make a positive effort in a time when consumers’ individuality appeals and an interest in fashion becomes higher. Felt is not only the oldest material in human history, but also a technique, and its applications are being handed down broadly. I have made various materials based mainly on a traditional felt technique using merino wool and nuno felt technique felting merino wool to cotton gauze. In nuno felt thing, I could observe that as wool and cotton was created as a single composite material, each material’s aesthetic, sensuous, functional and emotional description became much more diversified. The purpose of this study is to produce fashion materials using materials with rich texture to meet the consumers’ preference and diversity which are increasingly individualized, to design them and to seek possibility of developing differentiated wool materials which can satisfy the consumers’ individuality demand and preference.
