"Had it not been for the Tartars I would not be alive today ... [they] found me days later. [...] They covered my body in fat to help it regenerate warmth, and wrapped it in felt as an insulator to keep warmth in." --Myth of Joseph Beuys being saved by the Tartars after a plane crash

Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. Felt can be made of natural fibers such as wool, or from synthetic fibers such as petroleum-based acrylic or acrylonitrile or wood pulp-based rayon. Blended fibers are also common.
