Made my bestie a Sheltie ornament for her tree

This is only the second thing I've felted and I'm enjoying it so much. I have a lot to learn, but she loved it, so I'm happy 🥰

Colored core wool, does this not exist?

I really like getting started with core wool, to the point that I can get fairly good details with it and it's not the most time consuming. BUT when I use thin merrano (or merrino) color wool to cover the core it take an eternity, is uneven and blurs out my details.

Does core wool at all come in colors and anyone ever try dying it?

My 10yo son recently started needle felting and wanted me to post his cat family

He is making cats for everyone for Christmas. I spin, and I’m so excited to share my love of fiber with him!

Carding hand dyed acrylic yarn for roving?

Okay so, I have a bunch of white acrylic yarn that I’d love to dye. Thing is, I was wondering if after I dyed it, could I brush it out to create colored roving for needle felting? It’d be so great to create custom colors! Or, should I brush out the yarn first and then dye it? Has anyone tried anything like this? has it worked for you, hasn’t worked for you?

First needle felting project

I had done some needle felting years ago. My 12yo daughter and I worked on these for our seasonal bowl. We used a wool dryer ball for the base.

She did the star, she has a very aggressive style and already broke 4 needles. It was a lot of fun and possibly the most manageable handcraft for my arthritis.

Looking forward to lots more projects with her.
