Needle Felting Supplies from Your Friends in Needle Felting

Welcome to Felt Alive Needle Felting Supplies! My name is Kay Petal and I've been hooked on needle felting since my first stab at it back in 2007 :) I love the feel, the look, the sound and mostly the magic of sculpting wool with felting needles.

As a needle felted doll-maker, I know how important it is to have quality supplies for my craft. As a needle felting instructor, it's every bit as important that my students have access to quality wool, felting needles and supplies.

From my studio to yours, we offer fun varieties of wool and supplies that I use to bring my li'l Felt Alive celebrity caricature dolls to life!

Wool batting that works great for needle felting - not just for dolls but for anything you can imagine! If you have only felted with roving, you are in for a delightful surprise with our fast felting wool batting. We dye it in small batches for a wide array of amazing colors!
core wool batting - an original from felt aliveThe Original Core Wool -
I first discovered this natural (not dyed) wool batting that worked perfect for the core parts of my needle felted dolls back in 2008 and started calling it core wool in all of my video workshops. Now we see core wool has become a catch phrase for any plain wool batting or roving that hasn't been dyed. Not all wool felts the same, that's why I stick with my original core wool batting for fast felting and easy handling when bringing my dolls to life. It works great as a base for flat felting, too!

These colorful felting needles with cushioned grips are perhaps my proudest contribution to this fun craft. When I first started needle felting I was completely dissatisfied with the choices of felting needles on the market. They were designed to fit into machines or into cumbersome handles - not my hand - so I set out to fix that.

Felt Alive Felting Needles are colorful, lightweight, comfortable and super-easy to distinguish the various sizes - plus we offer them in single, double and quad points to maximize your needle felting fun!
