Needle Felting Tool Kit

Needle felting is growing in popularity for a very good reason; it is an incredibly versatile craft, highly enjoyable and creative.  But it begins with the right tools that are a joy to work with.  Here they are, all in one beautiful, organic Shetland felt bag.

  • Turned wood 3-needle holder tool. Reverse them to store inside the tool.  It’s neat!
  • 7 layer 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
  • Skein of mixed coloured tops – Shetland wool
  • 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.
