This majestic horse, named Buckskin, was needle felted by Sarah Glading of California!

Buckskin was made using wool from Sarah’s mother’s sheep that was saved since the ’80s! The mane and tail were made from Living Felt Black Mohair Top.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful horse with us, Sarah! We hope to see more soon!

Sarah Glading of California shared her first foal of the season, needle felted with Living Felt MC-1 with Dark Chocolate  and black NZ corriedale.

She shared with us that she has “just started” needle felting and this is only her third needle felted pony…brilliant!

These fun pieces were felted by Susan Nolte of Portland, OR.  I love the colors you choice for each, Susan! The mask is made from NZ Corriedale Turquoise, Marigold and Lemon. The Horse is NZ Corriedale Eggplant, Nutmeg, Raspberry , and White. Gorgeous! And I’d love to hear if you made the mask for a specific event. . . Who got to show it off?

“[The mask is] my second needle felting project. [A]  sort of bird head felted over a light weight wire frame made from an old fireplace screen. Waiting for more supplies!”

The dragon looks fiery with colors from the Summer Flowers studio pack and the Pegasus is a dream in white Merino Cross.  Thank you Michelle! They are beautiful!

These delightful creatures were needle felted over wire armature by Marsh Adams of West Bloomfield, MI.  That ball of yarn is too cute! And I love the curly hair on that Pomeranian! Great looks on all of them! Good Job!

“Here are some of my animals that I created using your Corriedale wool (butterscotch and natural dark) . . . I have enjoyed making friends’ dogs and cats for them.”

These gorgeous mythical creatures were magically made by Irma Hoani of New Zealand. What personality!  Thank you Irma!

“Here are some felts I have done using Living Felt supplies.
Beau, my baby dragon and Luna the unicorn were sculpted using your 36 gauge and 38 star needles. Beau’s belly is made of white merino from the monochrome pack.
Constance is made of Lady Slipper and white merino.
Sheila is made of hemlock and tundra from the greens goody pack.
Stormy is made of white from the monochrome pack.
Of all the fibres I have used, your merino-cross fast felting bats have been the quickest and easiest to work with by far. Thank you”
