Needle felting is a process which uses barbed needles to interlock wool fibers to form a more condensed material. Wool fibers have scales which when rubbed against each other catch and lock into place to create this denser material called felt. Felting needles are used to entangle the fibers.How is needle felting done?
Needle felting is done using a special barbed needle, a foam block and wool. By sitting the wool on the foam block and passing the needle through the wool repeatedly, it matts together. It can be sculpted and shaped.
