We share an abundance of tips and techniques in our popular workshops; however, if you’re unable to get to these, here are a few hints and pointers that we think will help you in your needle-felting endeavours.
Before you begin, rub the wool you’re about to use between your fingers. This loosens the individual fibres.
Some people use foam as a cushion when felting; however, this quickly disintegrates and becomes punctured. Hessian rice pillows make the perfect surface, these can be found in my online store.
Make quick, shallow stabs into the felt, as the hooks and barbs are towards the tips of most needles.
