Item details

This needle has inverted barbs. This design means that fibres are transported in the opposite direction than usual.
The reverse pull the fiber outward instead of pushing and felting fiber inwards.

These are used for making a furry look for animals, for adding textured effects to or pulling inner colours out of your felted pieces.

The reverse needle is also an invaluable tool for wet felting, allowing you to pull fibre to adhere new additions to.

My felting needles are made by a company from Germany which produces the highest quality of needle for felting. Their needle are stronger than others because they have been heat treated to strengthen them. (Please don’t buy needles from China, they break so easily).

Characteristics :
1 barb per edge
Gauge: 40
Length: 3“

How to take care for your needles :
Felting needles are very delicate and break easily if not used properly. Make sure you are stabbing in and out at the same angle, not twisting or bending the needle. If the needle won’t go into the wool easily, don’t force it! Either change to a finer needle. The mat you felt on should be thick enough to allow the needles to not hit the hard surface under the pad. This is the most common way to break needles. Felting needles are for dry felting and will rust if exposed to moisture.

FAQs

The merino top roving and Corriedale batts are produce with respect of the environment (Oeko-Tex certification). These fibers are also produce with respect of the health of the sheep and I only propose non-mulesed Merino (No-mulesing Certification). Oeko-tex Certification : Dyed fibers has organic based dyes. They meet the human-ecological requirements of the standard according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and present zero health risks. More info here: www.oeko-tex.com No-Mulesing Certification : I am working with serious suppliers who are aware that sheeps are raised gently and treated with respect. Merino wool fibers are no-mulesing certified.

There is a minimal processing in the production of the Fine Merino wool batts because we believe that the industry processes of using acids to burn out the VM (Vegetable matter) are unacceptable from an environmental point of view. This means that some VM remain in the fleeces and we remove them after by hand-sorting. My producer is responsible for all of his wastewater management and protecting environment is very important to him. Wool fibers are washed with one wash in a plant-based, readily biodegradable detergent, then rinse with water. The dyed batts are first dyed with standard acid leveling dyes for protein fibres (not organic).
