Needle Felting Tools

Needle Felting

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).

Wet Felting

We also have bamboo mats that help with the wet felting technique. The wet felting method of feltmaking using water (rather than needles) to lock the fibres uses unspun wool fibres, hot water, soap or detergent, bubblewrap and a little pressure to create fabulously soft felt.

Basic Feltmaking Kit from GillianGladRag

Ref: 10044

In stock

The BASIC GillianGladrag Feltmaking Kit is contained in a rather smart cotton drawstring bag, and contains everything you need to start making felt (except for soap, water and elbow grease!)

Unlike some other kits, this kit contains a long triple woven bamboo mat (60cm x 160cm) specially designed for feltmaking by Gillian, which makes the process faster and easier and with top results! It is big and long enough to make most felty things, - including scarves.

The beginner's felt making kit includes:

1) A 100g rainbow bag of merino wool tops (fleece) with all the colours of the rainbow plus black and white and a few others, - just to get you started. (Exact colours may vary slightly from the picture.)
2) A strong triple woven bamboo rolling mat designed for felt making (60cm wide x 160cm long)
3) A piece of net 1 metre long
4) Full clear illustrated instructions for making simple flat pieces of felt. (These are water resistant in case you get them wet!)
