Wool Pets

Make cute and cuddly creatures from a handful of fluff and a barbed needle! “Describes and illustrates each step . . . Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

This book about sculptural needle felting explains how you can create 3-D animals and figures using the felting needle to sculpt wool. It shows the techniques and describes how the felting needle works with wool fiber to create felt, while explaining the differences between this art form and other forms of felting.

Learn how to hold the needle, what sort of materials to use, and why. You’ll find twenty complete projects including various birds, bugs, four-legged animals, and people—each one unique and irresistible! Wool Pets also suggests ways to display your felted creations as mobiles and ornaments, or arranged in shadow boxes.
