Hiding your friends list from your friends is absolute necessity for many people like you or me since we have our family, acquaintances, neighbours etc. in our friends list.

So is it possible to hide your Facebook friends list from your Facebook friends / public?

My answer is Yes, it is possible. Facebook provides a lot of privacy settings to protect user information. They care about your privacy more than yourself.
