Needle felting (and other kinds of felting) is exploding in popularity! We’ve met so many great people over the past year or so that have tried then become completely addicted to felting. We carry a whack of fibre choices of course, and here are some of the dandy tool of the trade.

Ashford Wood Needle Felting Punch
Ashford Wood Needle Felting Punch
Canadian orders only. Includes 5 medium gauge needles.

A well-designed punch, made of sturdy silver beech hardwood. The hollow handle is turned to fit the hand well, and unscrews from the base to safely store five needles. The base will hold any multiple from 1 to 5 needles, as you wish. A much sturdier punch than the plastic ones on the market.

Bonsai Sprayer
Bonsai Sprayer
NEW! Perfect for watering your bonsai, but also a great tool for wet or Nuno felting!

Squeeze the rubber bulb to suck up your water or water/soap solution, then squeeze it over your project to deliver an even amount of water. Helps avoid applying too much water and making a big, mucky mess all over your work surface. We haven't tried this (neither of us felt) but some felters have told us they are much in demand and a great tool. The rubber bulb comes in a variety of colours. We will ship the colours randomly.

Felting Needles, Reverse – 10-pack
Canadian orders only. From Ashford of New Zealand.

A 10-pack of 36-gauge reverse-barb felting needles. Especially useful for crafters that make little needle-felted critters and want them to have a fuzzy "finish". This needle has barbs facing the reverse direction, so you use it at the very end to tug fibre back out to create a soft fuzzy appearance in specific places (think of a short zebra's mane) or all over. Comes in a clear rigid-plastic screw top container.

We also sell these as singles, but at the shop only.

Felting Needles, Star – 10 pack
Canadian orders only. From Ashford of New Zealand.

A 10-pack of star felting needles, These 38-gauge needles have been a huge hit here at the shop. The gauge is in between the medium and fine needles, but lots of our felters now call it "the fast needle". In cross-section this has a + sign shape, with four edges that really seem to grab the fibres well. Used mostly for finer detail work. Comes in a clear rigid-plastic screw top container.

We also sell these as singles, but at the shop only.
