New Goodies: Dreamy Short Fiber Merino Batts

Short Fiber Merino Batts featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Some of our friends have been requesting we carry these for a while…and here they are! These very fine Merino batts are approximately 19 microns and wet felt very quickly to a tight finish. *available in 4oz increments

We find them especially suitable for beads, jewelry, sculptural elements, vessels and even hats. If they are to be used on items that will be handled a great deal, we suggest it be something you can hard felt, otherwise softly felted items from these short fibers would have a higher tendency to pill.

Sincerely,
Lisa Shanor”

Thank you, Lisa! We love seeing our felting batts captured in the beautiful photos of Lisa’s work.

Wow! If you want your needle felting sculptures to be very, very firm…THIS IS THE NEEDLE!

Our new 32 Triangle Felting Needle is very coarse and will help you create a very solid foundation to your needle felting sculptures.

A note from Marie:

“Hi Friends!
I have been working with our new 32 Triangle felting needles all summer and I have to tell you I love them! We played with a few different configurations on barb placement, and I think you are really going to like what we have come up with … I sure do!

These needles work best with a slow, deliberate “push” and not the “bouncy poke” that I use with some other needles. I hope you will give them a try and let us know what you think!”
