All about this Craft Kit

Discover the therapeutic craft of needle felting with our Alpaca needle felting kit. If you’ve never picked up a felting needle before, let our detailed step-by-step instructions guide you, showing you how to turn the loose fluffy British wool into a wool sculpture you can be proud of.

This kit will take the average beginner about 2-4 hours to make, offering a wonderful way to relax after a long day at a computer or with the kids. Once you’ve completed one of our needle felting kits, you will have all the basic techniques and skills needed to continue with this calming craft.

  • All our kits are carefully packed by hand in our Dorset studio, supporting a small female-led business.
  • Designer Stephanie has chosen the perfect British wools for felting. Where we can’t find British wool, we have included small amounts of ethically sourced Merino wool.
  • Add a foam block to give you the ideal working surface for needle felting, protecting the needles and your table or lap. One foam block will last for at least 40 smaller projects. (NB. The foam is an optional add on when ordering and isn’t included in the kit).
  • Gift the complete kit to a craft-loving friend, or wrap up your own finished piece as a lovingly handmade present.

Kit contains sharp needles and is only suitable for ages 14+ or with adult supervision.

    Alpaca Needle Felting Kit

    Looking forward to finding time to make my new furry friend. Not well enough at the moment.

    Lovely results

    Easy to follow and complete kit. Makes a lovely alpaca. For a complete beginner it was very satisfying.

    First purchase.... and there will be more

    I bought several mini kits and the alpaca is just one. They arrive in dinky little boxes with a clear photograph of the finished piece and the "ingredients" list.
    Everything is included except a foam mat but there is an option to purchase one at the same time.
    Once you open it, there is more than enough wool to complete the project and the instructions are clear, with good photographs. The wool is good quality, the needles are SHARP!, and it's lovely to work with.
    If I had a constructive criticism, it's that for newbie felters, some idea of how firm pieces should be or an approximate length of time to make might be useful. And a link to your Youtube channel would be an excellent addition.
    Overall, the kits are excellent and easy to follow and complete. I'll be buying again
