List with links to the stores and examples of suitable tools and materials
Felting school online received so many emails with various questions about the tutorial: where can I get a proper sole for the winter boots? Where can I buy glue for installing the sole, is this info covered in the tutorial?

We understand the importance of all these nuances and contacted the master. She sent us the list with her favorite tools and materials with the links to the shops. Most of them are on Etsy, so hopefully, there won't be any problems with purchasing and shipping.

In the tutorial master tells about the exact characteristics of the products she uses. As master is located in Russia, she tells that the best soles she could find there were made in Ukraine. Sadly, due to war in the region she had to find alternative options. Master suggests shops from Lithuania, Czech Republic, Germany, but of course you can search for the relevant products in your local shops.
