£56.00

This beautifully presented complete needle felting kit includes

  • instructions
  • turned wood 3-needle tool + spare needles

An environmentally friendly kit for aspiring and established artists.  There’s no packaging – the bag that holds the kit together transforms into the needling pad, and then can be used to frame your pictures!

The art of drawing does not have to be confined to pencil and paper.  There are many materials which can produce line, and Artfelt offers freedom and flexibility as an art form, using an abundantly available, versatile material; wool.

Learn to create fine to bold lines, shading and texture using the natural sheep colours and a dash of madder-dyed wool.  The instructions are clear and detailed and the best tools and materials are included.  You can also order extra materials at any time.

Not suitable for children under 12 unless supervised at all times because of sharp needles.

Spills on felt can usually be easily sponged off.  Wool has the wonderful ability to ‘wear clean’, in other words, it will hold a lot of dirt before it is noticeable, so frequent washing is unnecessary and environmentally undesirable.  Also, depending on the vigour with which you wash the felt, a certain amount of shrinkage will happen, which on the one hand strengthens it, and on the other, makes it smaller.  So care must be taken to be gentle.

Hand washing of felt can actually improve its quality and strengthen it.

Wash in hand hot water using any good bar or powder soap, rinse, squeeze in a towel, pull into shape and leave to dry.
