Needle felting is the art of creating three-dimensional objects from wool fibres using a special felting needle. Wool fibres have tiny scales which will lock together when agitated with hot soapy water or in this case, with a felting needle. When the needle is stabbed into carded wool (unspun wool), the barbs on the needle catch the wool fibres and force them together and inwards, but not back out again. This action repeated over and over, causes the wool fibers to matt together into a solid fabric or a sculpture. This is slow work, but very meditative, relaxing, and fun!
Wool is an eco-friendly renewable resource. The sheep thank you for enjoying a product that begins with them.
