Choosing a Felting Fibre

We have many fibres to play with, keep the following in mind when choosing:

    • Karakul makes for a good base to felt over – it is inexpensive and used to create basic shapes that can be felted over by your chosen fibre.
    • Depending on your project, choose your favourite felting fibre
    • Locks are often used for doll hair, we have dyed locks and undyed locks
    • DO NOT buy superwash, this fibre does not felt
