Experiments in Needle Felting

3-needle-felting-examples

Needle felting is a technique where raw wool fibers are teased together using a special barbed needle.  After a while the fibers tangle into a solid mass and form felt.  By starting with a basic wad of wool and applying the needle in some areas more than others you can make interesting sculptural shapes.  

These three fellows are my first attempts at the process.
