Dream Felt Heart Felt Reverse Felting Needles
2 - 38T Reverse Needle
2 - 40T Reverse Needle
Inverted (Reverse) Felting Needle #38T - #40T - needle with reverse barbs. This design means that fibers are pulled in the opposite direction than regular felting needles.
These needles are wonderful for great effects to animal fur and mixing different layers of wool resulting in beautiful tints and shades.
This needle is made of highest quality and is industrial strength.
Felting needles are barbed needles used to interlock wool fibers. As the felting needle is moved up and down, the barbs on the needles catch the scales of the wool and entangle them creating a material called felt.
Traditionally the higher the number, the finer the needle. So, for example, from the needles Dream Felt stocks, gauge 32 is the thickest, followed by 34, 36, 38 and then finally 40 being the finest.
The heart handle end of these needles are handmade in Dream Felt's Studio. The heart shape is perfect and reduces the stress in your finger joints. You do not have to hold the felting needle as tight. You thumb and middle finger rest on the sides of the heart and your pointer finger rest on the top of the heart. You can compare by holding a regular felting needle and ours you will be amazed at the difference. Less stress, less fatigue.....more needle felting!!!
