Apart from a range of wool tops for spinning, we also stock some needle felting supplies. Based in Perth, we ship wool rovings & a range of felting supplies Australia wide and overseas.

Wool for felting

wool for feltingOur felting wool is predominately extra fine Australian merino wool roving – very soft against the skin and especially suitable for wearables. Exclusively blended for us, our range of variegated Uniblends consist of 50% 19 micron merino and 50% viscose roving. While we specialise in merino wool roving that is 19 micron or less, we also stock  a colourful range of 27micron Corriedale roving. As an official re-seller for  Dyeing House Gallery, we carry DHG wool rovings in many colours.

Wool for needle felting

As well as 30 colours in Corriedale roving / tops, we also stock a variety of carded wool batts for needle felting as well as wet felting. Coloured blends and natural Bergschaf wool batts complement a solid colour range of ‘Maori’ wool batts,  using 27 micron New Zealand wools. Mixed wool packs in skin tones also available.

Dyeing House Gallery dye all the fibre to the Oeko-Tex and GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard. Free of harmful chemicals, their environmentally friendly processes means our dyed viscose and wool roving  is safe for children and babies. An excellent choice for Steiner / Waldorf felting projects. Combing of the wool roving after dyeing makes the wool easy to use for felting, spinning and hand weaving.

Felting needles

 Felt needles in a variety of sizes and styles – Spiral, Star and Coarse felting needles

Viscose tops for feltingviscose roving for felting

A relatively new felting product to Australia is viscose fibre for felting. Viscose roving is a plant fibre made from wood pulp and at 19 micron is very compatible with our extra-fine wool roving.  As well as coordinating with our wool colours, our viscose fibre is also available in a palette of over 40 colours.  Adding viscose during felt making not only adds a wonderful sheen, but also adds  strength and reduces pilling.  Although a plant fibre, viscose has the same visual characteristics as silk fibre but is much more economical. Unlike silk fibre, viscose is easier to use as there is no static and can be used like silk for other projects too – eg to make ‘silk paper’.  Fibre reactive dyes can be used to dye viscose as it is a cellulose fibre as well as natural dyes.
