This is a still life felting project I worked on during the autumn of 2018. I assembled this picture using a combination of wet felting, needle felting, as well as hand and free motion embroidery. I’m often asked what different fibres can be used for, so I though I’d share some of the materials used in this project.
A – This project started with a background made from natural white Merino pre-felt that was slightly larger than the finished picture.
B – The vase along with the flowers and leaves are made from Merino roving which has been blended to provide some shading and depth. Using multiple colours and densities of fibre help prevent flat looking areas of solid colour.
C – Strands of banana silk fibres in a complimentary colour were added to the table surface to make it more interesting.

From Our Customers
I received my order today (super quick!), and wanted to tell you that I’m delighted with the items I’ve received. The colours are perfect for my next creation and as I’ve been pursing my art more seriously, I’m so pleased I’ve found a supplier who’s quality is outstanding!
Thank you so much Saira...all of the wool is beautiful!
I received my needle order yesterday. Thank-you for your prompt, efficient service. I have been needle felting for two years. I do pictures and use my wool as one would use paint. The sheet you included about the needles and their uses really excited me! I had no idea what the differences were.
