What is needle felting? Needle felting is the process of stabbing wool roving or like material repeatedly with special barbed needles. I have worked with all types of roving from sheep, alpacas, rabbits and have even worked with real pet fur on many occasions. I start each creation with a small fluff of raw wool roving and as I begin stabbing the wool, the barbs in the needles cause the wool to tangle. Felting each bit of wool into a firm shape makes it possible to create just about any shape. It takes tens of thousands of needle pokes to create each small piece and I do it all by hand. Needle felting is an old art form that has only recently began to gain popularity. I feel it’s one of the most tedious of the fiber arts but a lot of fun.
Do you do custom orders / special requests? I love special requests and personalized commissioned work, feel free to email me anytime with a request, be sure to put "Felting Inquiry" in the subject line. Keep in mind that I typically have a waiting list for special orders.
Are your creations pose able? Although I generally like to make my creations in a fixed pose I am happy to offer you the option of pose able felted critters, I can either use a wire armature or make them 5-way jointed so they can be gently posed, although there is an extra charge and this does cause minor wear and tear on the wool so please keep that in mind.
