Needle Felting Kits on Sale in my Etsy Store

I just put all needle felting kits on sale in my Etsy store. All fiber variety pack refills are on sale as well.

Needle felting is a very popular craft and is becoming more and more popular. You use a barbed felting needle and poke it into fiber (sheep's wool, llama and alpaca fiber, mohair, etc.). The felting needle catches strands of fiber and entangles them, forming felt. The more you poke, the more the fiber felts. You can create 3-D sculptures or flat artwork (like a painting). You can create animals, fantasy creatures, landscapes, etc. Your imagination is the only limit.

My kits contain everything you need to get started...all you add is the imagination! Kits contain felting needles, a foam pad to use as a work space (this prevents the felting needle from breaking), a couple of ounces of fiber (in either bright colors or natural colored fibers - brown, black, gray, etc.) and basic felting instructions along with suggested books and internet links for additional information, patterns, etc.

I offer Basic Needle Felting Kits

Critter Creator Needle Felting Kits and

Small and Medium Deluxe Needle Felting Kits.

So head on over to my Etsy store and check thes
e out! If an item is sold out, I will relist it - or contact me and request a Reserved listing.

felted animals are so cute! I'm so uncoordinated, that working with two needles of anything never works! Now, I'm guessing you use both needles at once... {:-D

You use one needle at a time. You start with the bigger needle for coarse work and then switch to the finer needle for finish work. There are needle felting tools that hold multiple needles at one time so you can cover more area in less time. Handy if you're doing a large wall hanging!

Very fun! I've done a little bit of needle felting and enjoyed it a lot. It's like sculpting with wool. ^^ I like it to use up little scrap bits of roving I have left over from spinning.

You have been so wonderful to my friend Stef about her beloved Roxy. Your last comment meant so much to her. You are truly a saint. Thank so much for everything :)

Michelle: Since I have been down that road already, I can truly empathize with her and know that it is NOT an easy path to go down. I'm so glad that my comments were helpful to Stef. I'm keeping Roxy and Stef in my prayers.

Needle felting can be an excellent hobby. You are only limited by your imagination.
