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."
