Star Felting Needles - Barbs on 4 sides 36 Gauge - This is good for quick firm felting, for using with courser wools and for joining pieces together. 38 Gauge - Similar to the 36 Star but also good for slightly finer work and finer wools.

Futhermore, what type of needle is used for felting?

Regular Felting Needles 36 Green – This is a good starter needle. Use it for outlines, heavy shaping, and joining felt to felt. 38 Red – This needle is good for starting, firming up your felt and shaping. 40 Blue – This needle is good for finer, lighter felting.

Along with, how do I identify a felting needle? You can find felting needles in the following gauges: 32, 36, 38, 40 and 42, with the needles on either end of the spectrum being the least common. As the number gets higher, the needle is thinner (contrary to what one might think).

In addition to this, how long do felting needles last?

But if you are careful and learn how to use the needles correctly, a felting needle can last for months or even years with regular use and you can avoid painful puncture wounds. One of my students needle felted for the first time at a live Felt Alive Workshop where the first lesson was the use and care of needles.

Can you felt without a felting needle?

Felting needles have tiny barbs or sharp hooks on the end. The barbs create tears the wool when you poke the wool. The barbs on the end of the needle also create tangles in the wool, which, as they build up, helps to compress loose wool into felt. There is no substitute for a felting needle.
