Needle Felting is a relatively new craft created in America in the 1980’s. To create 3D or flat shapes out of loose wool you repeatedly stab the wool with a special barbed needle. The barbs catch on the scales on the fibres and push them together where they grab onto each other. The needle then comes out clean leaving the fibres where they are. The more and more you stab, the more they hold onto one another and they gradually become solid. As you stab you manipulate the wool, sculpting and adding as you go to create different shapes. It’s a wonderfully therapeutic craft and is ideal for picking up and putting down as and when you find the time!
