Description

Spiral 38 Gauge medium felting needles. Also referred to as twisted felting needles, the triangular shaft has a spiral twist, with 2 barbs on each of the 3 edges.  A general purpose needle for rapid felting and neater finishing. Twisted / Spiral needles are around 10% more efficient than the standard triangular type as there is more movement of the fibre. Suitable for a variety of fibres from fine to reasonably coarse, long or short staple. Made from steel to European standards with a length of 7.6cm / 3 inches.spiral felting needles

The barbs on these twisted / spiral felting needles, in conjunction with the continuous stabbing motion, encourages the fibre to matt together until a solid felt forms. When using felting needles, stab straight into and then out of the fibre in the same direction. Avoid wiggling or angling  the needle when penetrating the fibre to avoid possible breakage. Use foam or a felting mat to protect your work surface.  Felting needles are sharp, so please keep away from children. Wipe dry before storage if needle comes into contact with damp fibre.

Felting needle sizes

The gauge of a felting needle refers to the thickness of the needle shaft. The higher the number, the smaller the thickness /diameter of the needle. Fine 40 gauge felting needles make barely discernible holes , while a 32 gauge needle will create larger holes.   To speed up the initial process of needle felting, use a larger or lower gauge needle. Work up to a finer needle with a higher gauge for final finishing touches.
