We were thrilled when Lisa Shanor contacted us to tell us about Painting with Wool, an article published by Casper Star-Tribune that features Lisa’s work, as well as our MC-1 Felting Batts.

“I am just sending you this for fun. I thought you might enjoy this article. You can see alot of livingfelt wools in the photos! Fun to see felt art appreciated!
Sincerely,
Lisa Shanor”

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

New Blue 32 Triangle Felting Needle featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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!”

New Colors in Flesh Tone Wool

What’s New About These Awesome Colors of our MC-1 Felting Batts?

* Our previous color called “flesh tone” is now named SAND. We know and love that there are so many colors for skin tones, and for a long time we have been wanting to make this change. We are now pleased to show you the colors we think are best used as a base color for “flesh tones” in dolls and portraits.

* SOON – we will have for you some brand new DIY Workshops for needle felting dolls and faces and you will see many of these shades used on those dolls with more detailed features.

* NOW – we have a new sub-category for flesh tones in our MC-1 where you can quickly access these particular colors. (on the MC-1 page, look for the flesh tones subcategory)

Awesome Fire Mountain Designer Pack Felted Ensemble

Nuno Felted Scarf and Wet Felted Hat by Sonja Weeks Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We challenged the ever-adventurous Sonja Weeks Oswalt of Tennessee to felt up anything she felt inspired to with our Fire Mountain Designer Pack, and she made this awesome ensemble.

She added approx. 2oz of additional fiber so she could make all 3 pieces. The scarf is nuno felted and the silk was initially dyed with Kool-Aid. The wrist warmers were wet felted over a resist, we have a free video lesson for this, and the hat was first wet felted flat and then shaped over a hat block.

The wrist warmers can shrink quite a bit!
