Felling is what loggers do to trees. But I think it was more likely a typo-
two ll's instead of two ee's. B.

Huh? "Felting" works just fine as a participle (e.g., it's verb
related). "Feeling" would come from the verb "to feel." "Fulling"
would come from the verb "to full." I don't know where you're getting
"felling" from...I've heard of "fell" as a past tense of "to fall," and
as an adjective, but I've not heard of "felling."
