Needle Felting




Needle Felting is one way to use up that wool stash!


What is Needle Felting?

It is a fiber art that creates felt without the use of water.

Using a barbed needle, wool fibers are tangled together by a continuous jabbing of the needle into the wool fiber.





You just need a few tools to get started:

wool roving/batt

felting needle

foam pad


It is a great project for children, you just have to be careful because those needles are SHARP (ouch).


For a beginner project, you can start out using a cookie cutter for a pattern. When we teach classes, that is typically what we use. (great ornaments)


You can work your way up to sculpting three dimensional projects.


I will be honest, I do not have the flair for making anything but "simple".  I have a friend, on the other hand, who is amazing at it. They raise sheep as well, and when you have sheep, you have wool and this has been a great artistic outlet for her.


This was her second felted wool project, which started out with a simple cookie cutter





She quickly moved onto more complicated projects...



Embellishments, ornaments, and felted figurines are just a few things you can create with needle felting.
