Felting and Feltmaking

Show First 20 Product(s)

This felting technique is commonly called "Needle Felting"; it uses barbed needles to push fibres through the top fabric to lock into the base fabric. The more "needling" the firmer the effect. Usually the base fabric is wool although we have successfully used the technique on cottons that have a dense weave such as some of the good quality batiks. It can be used in many different fibre arts. It can be added to felted handbags (for example knitted bags that are felted using hot water to felt the fibres can have wonderful decorative touches by the use of a felting needle).

Felting Needle Starter Kit

Felting Needle Starter Kit

Ref: 9171

In stock

Create felted projects in wool or silk using special felting needles. This starter kit contains a foam block, 4 felting needles (3 different sizes) and instructions on this waterless felting technique. The barbs on the needles catch and lock the fibres together when the needle is pushed through them and into the foam block. The more the fibres are stabbed, the more they lock together and the firmer the finished result.
