Pack of felting needles 10 pcs, premium stainless steel felting needles . These barbed needles catch the scales of the fibre when stabbed through wool. A dry felting technique, continuous stabbing encourages the fibre to matt together, eventually creating a solid felt. Use a bigger needle initially, working up to a fine one for final surface detail as the fibre hardens. Made in Germany, longer lasting rust resistant stainless steel needles. Fine needles: for use with fibres less than 20 microns, such as extra fine merino, yak and cashmere. Suitable for creating fine detail and neat surfaces.
Other than wool in the form of roving or batts, a host of other fibres can be incorporated when needle felting, including our viscose roving (plant fibre). For use individually or in a handle or holder that holds one or multiple felting needles. The needles are sharp and can cause injury or break if not used with care. Avoid twisting, bending or changing the angle when stabbing in and out. Working over armatures of wire will blunt the needle more quickly and working on some kind of needle felting mat is recommended.
