Needle Felting Foam


  • Protect your needles and table!
  • Perfect felting accessory
  • 7 inch working surface


A square of firm foam ideal for use as a needle felting work surface. Measures 7 x 7 x 1.5 inches. We recommend using a block of foam as a working surface for all our needle felting kits.

Our foam packaging is plastic free! 

You use the foam block as a working surface to protect the needles and your table (or lap!). For needle felting you need something soft for the needles to go into whilst you're stabbing the wool. You can use a special felting brush or just a household sponge but our foam blocks are much firmer, will last longer meaning you can use one block of foam to make numerous pieces and is better suited to sculptural felting as you can also use it to help with shaping certain pieces, especially flat things such as wings and ears, as well as beaks and noses.

 *N.B. Foam colour may vary*

Needle felting foam and needle holder

These have both been excellent quality and comfortable to use. Do the job exactly as hoped, especially as a new starter in needle felting. They arrived parcelled up beautifully in tissue paper, as if bought at a shop in person. I am very happy!

All you need to get started

Quality items packed with care. I ordered needles, foam and a pack of roll top. This has allowed me to create some felt animals. I will be ordering again when the time comes
