Item details

My shop link:
If your wanting to make needle felted figures/critters, trees, tendrils etc that have posable parts to give them character and form, you will need to make an inner frame of wire.

These 2 gauges of wire are pretty much all you need for making anything from miniatures, to figures standing 12" (30cm) high.

Monty mouse in the photograph was made with 3 lengths of 20swg green wire cut into 10" (25cm) lengths.
He stands 4.5" (11cm) tall.

There are several mixed gauges or single size packs to choose from on this listing.
The higher the gauge number the finer it is.

Green wire uses:
Green wire 20swg - Used for the main framework of your figures, trees, branches, stems etc.
Comes in 12" and 20" lengths.

Green wire 24swg - Used for miniature figures, critters, leaves, mini trees,
fine branches, fine stems, tendrils etc.
Also used for fingers, toes and claws on larger figures.
Comes in 7" lengths.

Cotton wire uses:
The cotton covered wire adds a nice grippy base for the wool fibres to bind to.
I have used 2 lengths of cotton covered 20swg wire for the elves arms and legs, shown in the third photograph.

Cotton covered wire 20swg - Used for the main framework of your figures, legs, arms, trees, branches, stems etc. If you need a grippy surface to the wire.
Comes in 12" lengths.

Cotton covered wire 24swg - Used for wings like my Buzzbee bees in the picture, before covering with white wool. Also tails, arms, legs, tendrils for pumpkins and vine leaves etc.
Can be used to wind around the green wire on thicker parts of larger figures to add grip before covering with wool.
You can trim the cotton towards the ends of tendrils, before covering with wool to make them more realistic.
Comes in 12" lengths.

Happy felting. Sue :)
