    Dust bunnies (often one word, dustbunnies) are little clumps of dust that form under furniture and in corners that are not cleaned regularly. They are made of hair, lint, dead skin, dust, and sometimes light rubbish and debris, and are held together by static electricity and felt like-entanglement. In some regions of Britain, dust bunnies are sometimes called beggar's velvet.[1]

    Can you explain to me what "felt-like-entanglement" means in this sentence?

    Re: felt-like-entanglement

    "felt-like entanglement"

    The fabric "felt" is made of fibres that are matted together, not woven together.

    Something that is "felt-like" has a similar effect to felt.

    "entanglement" here is synonymous with "matted fibres"
