What is needle felting? Needle felting is a way to make three dimensional felt objects out of unspun sheep's wool. You can create just about anything you can imagine with roving (unspun wool that has been washed and sometimes dyed) and a needle. The special felting needle has barbs that interlock the strands of wool as you poke, to make a soft but firm creation. This is a fun and easy craft for anyone who can use a needle. You will get hooked on this fun craft! When you are finished with your bee you can take it home and turn it into nearly anything: a pin, magnet or just an adorable decoration.
