Transcript

So let's go through some of the words that you would need a needle felting. Here, I'm going to start with the raw wool. We don't use this in needle felting when it's not clean, but this is what it looks like when it has all the little bits and pieces of dirt and stuff in it. Some of them are very oily. So this is what the world looks like before it's washed and brushed out and carted. Next, we have roving.

Now roving, you could see all the wool is going in the same direction. So it's been combed, and it's called combed or roading. And it usually comes in involved. That's how it's usually spelled and this is the kind of wool that you would probably find in most of your kits that you would purchase online. This is easy to throw With but not as easy to felt with as that are carded, we'll see all the fibers here going in all different directions. So it grabs onto the needle a lot easier.

Now, all this wool comes in all sorts of colors, they dye them, because I don't think I've ever seen a sheep in this color, but I could be mistaken. Then you have coral, which is really cheap, and inexpensive. And it's great for beginner. And this is what we're actually going to use to felt our little pig. And it's used for the inside of projects. So you would maybe build your shape with this, and then cover it needle felt over it with your nicer wool.

So that's horrible. And they come in big, big bags if you if you want it. I just want to show you also a merino wool from the Merino sheep. I don't know if you could tell from this video but it's really silky and smooth. It feels it feels fantastic, but it's not easy to felt with because those fibers are much smoother so they're not going to lock on to your needle as quickly or as efficiently. So that's merino wool.
