Let's talk about some of the felting needles that are out there. You see these are color coded on top. Some of the manufacturers color code them, so you didn't know the difference between the needles, because needles, needles come in all different gauges and shapes. So there's a 36 gauge, a 38 gauge, a 40 gauge, this triangle shaped spiral crown tip dar tip. The one that comes in most of the kits is a 38 gauge, I believe triangle needle. I tend to use the 40 needle for a lot of my work.

And these are very sharp and they have these tiny barbs on the end and it's very difficult to feel it's amazing that these Barb's can catch the wool and hook those those fibers together. So when your needle felting, you're pushing the wall in and it's not coming back out. So it's locking those fibers Together, they do make a reverse needle that will actually pull the fiber out. So I want to show you some of the holders. This this holder you can use. There's the clover that holds three needles, but you can switch it out.

And you can use two needles or one needle. And this would be great when you're felting, a larger area and a larger piece, and you just want to move it along and go faster. That would be that. Then there's also this that has, oh, I don't know, maybe eight needles in it. And this is great to fell flat areas, like if you were doing an ear for an animal and that was felt a lot faster than using a single needle. But when I taught myself how to needle felt, I didn't know about these I just knew about the single needle.

So I still mostly do all my work with a single needle. So you have to kind of find the needle that's right for you and and for the wall. So you might want to buy a sample pack of needles and try them all out on you different rules.
