Great quick service, lovely looking product. Not yet attempted as going in a stocking
I bought the felting kids as presents for my sisters to try out, I’m sure they will love them though and can’t wait to see them made up
Very nice item, easy made, nicely gifted pack.
I bought a kit for a friend for Christmas, it went down very well, they said it was easy to follow and great fun. Brilliant gifts!
This little gem was part of my first purchase from your shop and I was delighted with my purchases.
The kits are absolutely STUFFED with kit; not one, but two needles, enough wool to probably make 2 penguins (as long as you don't make a huge mistake like not rolling the wool tight enough the first time) and it's clear from the feel of the wool that it's high quality. The packaging is great with a clear picture of the penguin on the front and it comes with decent instructions, using pictures as well as written instructions.
I found the instructions easy to follow, although they could have been a little more specific about how tightly to roll the wool or in shaping parts like the wings.
Overall, an excellent little kit which is really good value for money.
