Needle Felting Tool Kit

£37.50

As a maker, I think it’s essential to have tools that feel good in every way; good materials, nice to handle, easy to use and travel with.  This is my new needle felting tool kit in a handy and beautiful felt bag.  No instructions, just an adorable felty needling pad that will be a joy to use and lasts many times longer than manmade alternatives, AND it can be used as a cushion when it’s come to the end of it’s use.  The tool is beautifully turned wood, a wonderful design, and you can invert the 3 needles to insert into the handles so you can travel with it.  You get 3 spare needles too.

  • Turned wood 3-needle holder tool. Reverse them to store inside the tool.  It’s neat!
  • Organic felt needling pad.  If you keep the layers separated it will survive heavy use.  Otherwise, turn it into a kneeling pad!
  • 6 needles – 36 gauge
  • Presented in a Shetland felt bag

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.
