So you have spent hours making your fabulous needle felted sheep, only to realise you don’t have any curls to finish it. Grrrr! Not to worry, just grab a ball of wool, yarn or similar and make your own. It’s really easy and creates a whole new look for your needle felted animals; Scroll down for video tutorial.
It is also very calming and saves you sitting by the post box like this, impatiently waiting for your curly wool to arrive.
Here is a quick video (part 2) showing you how easy it is. I have used a coarse rug yarn but any yarn with an element of wool in it will do.
Use any yarn you have in your craft box; It is easier to apply if it has some wool content. I have used a coarse rug yarn and a really soft Merino for these two gorgeous sheep.
You will also find out how to add this lush, art yarn (video part 1) to your projects. I used a 40 triangle needle as it is a little easier but a standard (usually a 36 or 38 gauge) will do just fine.
Sheep needle felting kits using this fabulous art yarn are available on the Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts website
Happy creating. Sandy x

I would like to purchase a few things but I don’t know the price between the pound and the dollar. Would you please give me an idea on how to figure it. I need to know how much I am spending. Thank you. Pat
Hi Pat. At the bottom of each page of the website you will find a currency converter. Hope this helps.
