In Stock Now.....
Felt can be made in more than one way. We now stock different felt making kits, one uses the needle punching method and the other uses a rolling technique. The rolling technique seems to be well suited to create large areas of felt by laying fibres on a felting net, damping them with warm water and rolling the felt to knit the fibres together.The needle punching method uses a special needle with barbs on the side. You place fibres on a foam block and stab the fibres repeatedly with the needle tool. This tool can be used for finer detailed felt work. Some of the members of staff are testing this needle punching kit and trying out these techniques. We’ll keep you informed of how they get on!We also stock assorted packs of the Merino Wool Tops, these are the fibres used in felt making and can also be used in spinning and weaving.

We now also have spare needles for the needle felting kits.
