About Felt Alive Felting Needles
The needles used for needle felting are tools borrowed from industry. These barbed felting needles were designed to fit into industrial needle felting machines; not for a human (or felted ;) hand. They are made of steel with 'L' shaped ends. There are many different gauges and barb/blade configurations but the needles all look pretty much the same.
When I first started needle felting I was VERY confused about what needles to use and even more confused about how to tell them apart. I could tell that certain needles seemed to work better than others but I really had no clue! I would just grab needles and felt for a little while to see if it was effective or not. EVENTUALLY after trying many different needles I settled on my favorites. Still, I found them to be uncomfortable to hold onto for hours of needle felting. They are slippery and that 'L' shaped end can dig in to your fingertips as you work. It felt like I was using tools designed for industry and I still couldn't tell them apart!
I was in love with this wonderful craft and I wanted tools that felt fun!
In my quest to find the perfect felting needles, I found color-coded needles and I found felting needle handles but I could not find just what I was looking for. So, we had to re-invent the wheel (err, needle) to have fabulous tools for this fabulous craft. And after much trial and error, our fabulous needles were born. We color coded them to accompany Felt Alive Video Workshops making it easy for my students to follow my lead and we cushioned them for comfort. One thing led to another and soon we found that two needles together work really great and four needles together - well, just wow!
