brown felting needle

40 gauge / 3x3x3 barbs / 3 inch / fast

Use Brown for medium wools, such as Corriedale and Halfbred, and other fibres of similar diameter such as human hair and Hemp, and for fast, early-stage felting of fine wools such as Polworth and Merino, and other fibres of similar diameter such as Alpaca, Silk, and fine manmade fibres such as rayon, Soy silk, and Ingeo if they are being used for the bulk of the project or surface irregularity is not an issue. This needle is not recommended for attaching fine embellishing fibres.

Pick Brown

cream felting needle

40 gauge / 2x2x2 barbs / 3.5 inch / Merino

Use Cream for early and firming stages of felting for fine wools or for fast deep action with easy penetration on medium wool. The Cream needle works particularly well for Merino when other needles seem to not grip the fibre. This needle tends to bend easily.

Pick Cream

yellow felting needle

40 gauge / 2x2x2 barbs / 3.5 inch

Use Yellow for coarse or medium wool projects and as a finishing needle for coarse wools such as Romney, Leicester and Lincoln and fibres of similar diameter. Leaves less pronounced puncture marks than Brown. Close barb spacing like Orange but works over a greater depth.

Pick Yellow

gold felting needle

40 gauge / 3x3x0 barbs / 3 inch

Use Gold for firming and finishing of fine wools such as Merino and Polworth, and fibres of similar diameter such as Angora, Alpaca, Silk, and manmade fibres such as Rayon, Soy silk and Ingeo.

Pick Gold

orange felting needle

40 gauge / 2x2x2 barbs / 3 inch
