Felting needles are barbed needles used to interlock wool fibers. As the felting needle is moved up and down, the barbs on the needles catch the scales of the wool and entangle them creating felted material. Use these needles to create beautiful designs on a needle felting project.
This pack contains metal and plastic felting needles in sizes 36, 38, 40 triangle and 38 star. Made in the U.S.A.
The 36 gauge is used for faster coarse felting that leaves a larger hole in the felted surface. The 38 gauge needle is a general purpose needle used for medium felting that leaves a smaller hole than the 36 and is good for attaching felt to felt to wool. The 40 gauge is excellent for fine detailing and sculpting. The 38 gauge star needle is a 4-sided needle that leaves a smaller hole in the felted surface. It felts slower than the large gauge 3-sided triangle needles, but the detail is finer.
