What a fabulous little fox!
“I needle felted this fox using wool I purchased from LivingFelt. He is listed for sale on Etsy. I felted him over a wire … using bright white and black onyx Merino-cross fast and toffee Corriedale. I love the wool that you have available and look forward to making many more critters with your products. I have other needles, but mostly I use 38 star and 40 triangle needles. Thank you for always inspiring me with your weekly emails.”

A wonderfully realistic felted sheep!
“I needle felted this Sheep for a woman in Colorado and put the family brand on it. I almost exclusively used Living Felt’s core wool, with areas of their bright white wool. For realism, I used the core wool because I didn’t think a Sheep would be bright white. For the curly parts, I soaked the wool in water, and twisted it.
I thought there was something neat about a Sheep made of wool.”

What an original and darling idea! Kiersten has a very sweet style and uses a lot of MC-1 Batts in her Friendly Feltees creations.
“This is my latest of little creatures I make called “Dragon-flies”. I’ve been dieing to do a purple one. He turned out about how I was hoping.”

Incredible realism with a sense of humor! This incredible needle felted sculpture was shared in our fb group by Irene Clark.
“Hi all, here is my new creation — this kitty is frequently spotted under our bird feeders and he take joy in annoying my indoor cats. But outside of that, he is a very sweet fellow smile emoticon:) I called this “What bird?..”
This cat is made from MC-1 batt and gray merino [carbon] (21.5 microns), all from Living Felt. It is felted on wire armature, the feathers are those of real quail, the eyes are glass, hand-painted by me.”

We SO fell in love with the gorgeous heron Sandra Atkins needle felted from our fibers, and this one was made just for us. It is a bit of a “relief” with the heron having dimension off the background.
Despite losing power and emergency evacuations, this brilliant work of art was birthed and now hangs at our office in Austin, TX.
The background is needle felted Living Felt MC-1 batting in Storm Gray various colors of Merino Top, and Merino Silk Blends make up the bird, and lovely dyed locks add texture.

Megan Nedds shared her most recent and quite spectacular sculpture in our facebook group. It is so fun for us to have seen the inspiration images, help select colors and now see the finished work!
“Cece the White-Fronted Capuchin is finally finished! She is life-sized, with a head and body length of 13 inches, and a height of 13 inches from her hands to the top of her head. She has hand painted glass eyes, and polymer clay fingernails. She took approximately 100 hours to complete. I used many Living Felt merino top colors, Sand Dollar, Mushroom, Mocha, Oak, Milk Chocolate and Bitter Chocolate.”
