Needle felting is the art of shaping sheep wool with a barbed needle usually over a wire armature (its skeleton) which allows the sculpture to be bent into various positions. It takes a great deal of time and patience to create each handmade item due to the delicate nature of the wool fibers. The sculptures are for decorative use only and should be kept away from children and pets as most contain wire, glass eyes, clay and our new products of swax and paverpol. I like using these products which make the sculptures look even more realistic.
