Wool Roving & Felting Accessories FAQs

What is wool roving?

Wool roving is the name given to natural wool fibres that have been cleaned, carded, combed, processed and sometimes dyed - but most importantly, has not been spun into yarn. Wool roving resembles a fluffy bundle of fibres that's ready to be transformed through spinning or felting processes.

What is needle felting?

Needle felting is the art of creating three dimensional objects using wool fibres or wool roving. With the use of special tools including felting needles and felting mats you can create gorgeous woollen felt animals - or anything your imagination desires!

How to do needle felting

Needle felting is a simple process, but one that requires patience for repetitive motions! Felting needles feature a hooked, barbed end that causes wool fibres to start to lock together as it's pushed into the wool roving. It's a soothing and meditative process, and a super accessible craft for most ages and skill levels. Explore the materials, techniques and processes for needle felting in more detail in our comprehensive needle felting & embroidery DIY guide!

Do I have to use wool for felting?

Wool is a natural protein fibre, most commonly sourced from sheep. It's technically a hair fibre which features tiny, naturally occurring overlapping scales called cuticle cells. Because of this unique surface structure, wool fibres will naturally mesh and lock together when continuously agitated - just think of how your hair can sometimes get matted together! For this reason, only wool roving fibres can be used for felting. Other natural fibres and smooth synthetic fibres lack the required structure to be felted together.
