WHAT IS FELTING?
Needle felting involves using a sharp barbed needle to sculpt and shape wool roving into 3D shapes like animals, landscapes, food, or even masks or clothing. Many people we’ve taught to felt at workshops at schools, libraries and event comment on how easy and stress relieving it is! A little stabbing can really get the stress out; hence why teachers seem to love felting so much!
Wool has been used for knitting, weaving, crocheting and even wet felting for many years, but the phenomenon of needle felting only came about with the invention of the industrial felting machine. Someone, somewhere got the brilliant idea to remove a single needle from the machine and use it to sculpt.
Concerned about safety of felting needles?
Wet felting is another felting method which doesn't involve needles to shape the wool. Instead wet felting uses soap water and agitation to matte fibres to create 2D or 3D shapes.
All of the Magic Trout Imaginarium’s felting kits use Corriedale wool. Our wool is sustainable sourced wool from Ashford in New Zealand, colored with natural non toxic dyes.
Once you learn the art of felting you can move onto creating your own wonderous wool creations. Check out our blog for tutorials as well as our gallery to see all the fun projects you could create with wool! We also have a Youtube channel, Instagram and Pinterest
