What materials do I need for needle felting?

Are you new to needle felting and wondering what supplies you'll need to get started? Look no further than Crafty Frog! We have everything you need to start your next project, from felting needles to wool roving.

Let's start with the basics. The essential materials you'll need for needle felting include wool roving or batting, a felting needle, and a foam pad or surface to work on. Wool roving is wool that has been cleaned and carded into a fluffy, fibrous mass. Batting is similar, but it's usually thicker and more dense. Both are suitable for needle felting, and you can choose from a range of colours and types to suit your project.

Felting needles are the most important tool for needle felting. They have tiny barbs that catch and tangle the wool fibres together, allowing you to sculpt and shape them as desired. At Crafty Frog, we carry a variety of felting needles, including single, double, and triple needles, as well as needle felting punches for larger projects.

A foam pad or surface is also important for needle felting. The foam provides a stable base for your project and helps to protect your work surface from damage. We have a range of foam pads and surfaces available at Crafty Frog, including small pads for on-the-go felting and larger surfaces for bigger projects.

In addition to these basics, there are a few other materials you may want to consider. Scissors can be useful for trimming and shaping your project, and wire can be used to add structure or support to larger creations. You can also add other embellishments, like beads or embroidery thread, to give your project extra flair.

At Crafty Frog, we carry a wide range of needle felting supplies to suit every project and budget. We're passionate about this fun and creative craft, and we're here to help you get started. So why not stop by our store and stock up on everything you need for your next needle felting adventure?
