Virtue of patience
Needle felting is the most laborious way of making felt out of wool fibers. In the same time needle felting technique is the most precise one. It makes it perfect for figurines, felt balls, small wool applications, detailed patterns and emblems decorating felted accessories. There is nothing better than needle felting whenever you work on a detail and want to control the material down to the smallest fiber.
In this technique you use a special felting needle or a set of needles combined in a bigger tool. Thanks to their barbed edges they allow you to hook fibers while you stick them into the wool. In this way you can gradually tangle wool fibers with each other, while giving them a desired shape. To obtain a regular shape, you can use a baking mold, etc. All needle felted items have numerous small holes which are a unique feature of this technique. You can see them on our needle felted heart as well, when you take a closer look at the last picture.
