retailers in several countries.

"I just received my merino wool goody
bag and merino white wool batting and all I can say is “Wow”!
I have been wet felting with Romney/cross wool and have been struggling.
This is a dream. I am in love with merino wool. And, I really appreciate
the quickness of the order. You have another life long customer!
And I will be telling all to purchase their wool from your company. Thank
you so much for everything"
much appreciation and excitement"
I just received my first order from you. I used to have my own fiber store
I just want to say that I am so happy with the quality of your product,
attention to detail, use of recycled materials, and shipping speed.
Thanks! It was hard to pay "retail" for wool after having my
own shop. But I feel like I got my money's worth from your business. Thanks
and have a great day :)"

" Thanks so much for the wonderful
service, and the wools are amazing. Very different from what I have been
using here in NZ. I like variety in my work, so I am constantly looking
for new fibres and colour blends! "
Thanks so much!"

How do I DO this? (use the felting needle)
The felting needle is used by poking the needle into the wool
with a straight up & down motion. The pressure is light, like
a light bounce ~ bounce. Think as though you are using a paint
brush to make dots on a canvas, dot dot, dot dot dot….you
don’t need a lot of force. Experiment with the needles to
find the right one for the job you are doing.
Where can I get more of the STRING JOINTING thread?
You can use dental floss, button thread or find waxed floss just
like in our kits from the LEATHER section of your local craft
How many needles should I have on hand?
We suggest having 2-3 of each size available. Sometimes you might
like to hold two needles at once, or have a back up if one breaks.
My needle broke / snapped, is this normal? … why
did this happen? Etc.
Sometimes people break needles when they are just learning. The
shafts are very thin and brittle and will snap if any SIDEWAYS
pressure is put on them – like trying to tug wool that has
already been felted into place. (a darning needle is best for
this as it is very strong) Most often people learn what not to
do after breaking one or two.
Needle felting is a term for
using one or more felting needles by hand to create flat felt or felt sculpture.
The first use of felting needles in this manner that we know of was in the
early 1980's by artisans David & Eleanor Stanwood. Try our needle felting
