Needle Felting

What is needle felting?

1005felting

Carded wool is used to make felt.  There is needle felting and wet felting, which uses soap and water.  Kathy specializes in needle felting.  Felting can be 2-dimensional (flat) or 3-dimensional (see picture above of green bear and picture below).  Roving is combed, unspun wool that is very soft.  Needle felting can add embellishment or extra dimension to other items.  Contact Kathy about any special requests but please keep in mind that this art is a bit tedious and time-consuming.  Of course, Kathy would be happy to teach it to you, as well!
