Professional felting needles mixed sets

from 4.50

Felting needles are industrial needles, used in commercial wool felt production, and felting artists have adopted these needles for hand felting. Felting needles are available in a range of sizes, but many are for commercial machine use, so I do not stock them all. Each needle has a different function and these are split into 3 common types:

Triangular, Star and NEW Spiral felting needles. Each needle has a coloured tip to show which gauge it is (the higher the gauge the finer/ smaller the diameter of the needle, and the smaller the barbs).  As your wool gradually firms up, you will need to continue changing to a finer/smaller sized needle.


Triangular Needles: Have three sides with regularly spaced barbs.

36 Gauge Green: Good starter needle for outlines, shaping and joining. Felts very quickly to speed up early stages of felting.

38 Gauge Red: Good for starting, firming up and shaping. A good all round needle.

40 Gauge Blue: Good all round, and during mid stages. For adding detail and for finishing. 

42 Gauge Gold: The best needle for finishing. Leaves hardly any poke holes.  For finishing touches, working with a few wisps of wool, adding finishing touches.
 

Star Felting Needles: Have 4 sides, with regular spaced barbs 2 a side.

38 Gauge Black:  Great all round needle and a good follow on from the Green Triangular needle.

NEW Spiral Needles: These are twisted triangular needles that have more barbs for faster felting. Designed to reduce breakages.

38 Gauge Purple Spiral: For shaping and firming, the perfect all rounder.

40 Gauge Light Blue Spiral: For shaping and perfect for finishing.

Available in two mixed sets: Set of 7 needles (contains 1 of each type) or set of 14 (contains 2 of each needle type).

PLEASE NOTE: Felting needles are incredibly sharp and are not recommended for children under the age of 10. Please ensure that they are used under adult supervision only.
