Why Wool is the Best Making Material
Let Us Explain Why Wool is the Best Making Material
Wool is earth friendly, familiar and affordable. You can try out a variety of techniques with wool including needle felting, wet felting, spinning, knitting, crocheting or weaving. Magic Trout Imaginarium buys our wool from New Zealand, where sheep are bred for their wool, rather than for their meat or dairy products. This means they are treated like gold!

Wool is a great making material for all ages and ability levels. You can engage and inspire your students imaginations with best beginner felting projects.
Wet felting is a perfect project for K-4, whereas needle felting is best for grades 4 and up. This makes wool the perfect choice for your next class project regardless of the grade level.
