What is needle felting?

Needle felting is the process of tangling one piece of wool to another using special barbed needles. The needles take the wool fibers from one piece and drag them through the other piece where they entangle and attach to form felt.

Ever since we shared our post on the best craft kits for adults, we noticed that needle felting kits have been one of the most popular crafts to do. If you’re new to needle felting, it’s best to stick to simpler shaped felting kits, such as Christmas bauble ornaments or rounded owl shapes. And with some time and practice, you’ll be able to move on to the more challenging felting kits, such as the hedgehog or the lazy cat.

What supplies are needed for needle felting?

Felting is a fairly inexpensive craft, requiring only a few felt tools including wool, felting needles and a cushion or pad to work on. Needle felting kits takes the guesswork out of felting, leaving you to just jump in and create.

  • Wool – with so many variations of wool, it can be tricky to know which one is right for you. Keep note of the type of wool used when experimenting to become familiar with what works best for you. Wunder Label suggests to select a mid length wool fiber when first starting out.
  • Felting Needles – are a specific type of needle with barbs at the ends and needle sizes vary according to the project at hand.
  • Felting Cushion – used as a surface to work on instead of the table top or your lap. This will protect the surface from repeated stabbing motions as well as protecting the needle ends from breaking.

Needle Felting Kits for all Skill Levels:

This list includes mostly sculptural felting projects to create three dimensional pieces from wool roving, as opposed to applique felting which attaches wool to a flat piece of wool fabric or felt. The list is loosely sorted by beginner levels up to more skilled levels.
