Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!


This month, I’ve rounded up five fresh needle felt accounts to add to your Instagram feeds! Did you know that you can follow hashtags, like #needlefeltingon Instagram now? I still prefer to do my browsing the old fashioned way, but I’m keeping an eye on what the algorithm thinks I might like too. In fact, ONE of these five accounts was suggested by the machines. Can you guess which one?

What Technique Is This?

Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
