WHAT IS NEEDLE 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 events 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!

Wet felting is another form of felting, involving layering pieces of wool in rows in alternating directions then by adding soap and water and agitation, the wool starts to matt into a solid piece of 'felt'.

Wool is used for knitting, weaving, crocheting and even wet felting. 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.

In needle felting, it is best to use wool that catches easily on felting needles. All of the Magic Trout Imaginarium’s felting kits use Corriedale wool. Our wool is sustainably sourced wool from Ashford in New Zealand, colored with natural non-toxic dyes.

Once you learn the art of felting you can move on to 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 channelInstagram and Pinterest
