Wool Felt Thread and Felting –wool challenge

Share the love!


I am kind of the use it because i have it kind of girl.  I don’t really go out of my way to purchase new notions, just for a project. I know, I know. I find out in the end that doing that sometimes is totally worth it!

I figured i would hunt around for a bit to help out on a few of the wool things out there.


Wool can be used in a few different ways.  Spun, so you can needle it {crochet or knit}…. spun thinner, so it is embroidery floss……. felted, so you can applique it… 

How about some resources for a few of these fun wool things!

Five Green Acres has a wonderful video on the process of making the wool skeins from her super happy sheep. {you can also purchase from here shop}

There is also a great interview with Mary Jo on Sew Liberated.


Once you have that ball of beautiful wool– you might be interested in doing some needle felting–

Laura Lee Burch has some super great wool felting tutorials to help you along the way– plus, a wonderful sense of humor!

now, if you are like me you hunt the second hand stores for some beautiful wool sweaters to felt— but then you get them home and have no idea what to do next!
