When choosing wool for sculptural needle felting, consider the benefits of using batting rather than roving.
 
No matter what the breed of sheep, wool that has been prepared into batting seems so much easier to needle felt than wool that has been prepared into roving, tops or sliver.
Wool Batting works great for needle feltingThe main difference is that batting is messy! The fibers are unorganized and as you tangle them together with the felting needles, they shrink together from all directions.
 
Merino RovingWith roving (aka tops or sliver) the fibers have been combed so they all run in the same direction. As you tangle the fibers together with your felting needle, the fibers shrink along the lines of the fibers leaving grooves or stripes.
 
Wool prepared into batting for is loftier than roving - it holds more air. And to make needle felted characters that flex and move, this quality is important.
We offer our three favorite varieties of Wool Batting!

About Kay

Kay Petal picked up her first felting needle in 1997. Without any background in art, the craft of needle felting wool led Kay to discover a talent for 3d caricature art. Her celebrity caricature dolls have been seen on The Conan O'Brien Show and several magazines.

Having produced five full-length DVD workshops Kay has students all over the world, many of whom have gone on to become professional needle felt artists. She also designed and manufactures specialized, color-coded felting needles that she calls Super-Duper.

Kay is a lifelong Alaskan but most recently can be found working in her studio in the tiny town of O'Brien in southern Oregon. Visit www.feltalive.com to learn more.
