Felting Needle Explanation
Star needle – 4 side needle with 3 barbs down all 4 sides.
Star 36 gauge – orange, To start projects, felts core wool quickly and firmly. with 8 barbs, are medium gauge needles, useful for quickly building up the main body of a project. These cross-star needles have a greater number of sides and barbs than triangular needle, so they felt faster.
Star 38 gauge – blue, Good all round needle, great for add top coat (colour) to your projects.with 8 barbs, are a medium gauge – finer than a 36 gauge, but still useful for quickly for building up the main body of a project.
Star 40 gauge – pink, Use for fine detail, like eyes. Will also works to flatten down stray fibre on the surface of a project.
Star 42 gauge – black, Will felt in one fibre at a time, when doing fine work like eyes, noses or hair.
Triangle needle – 3 sided with 2 barbs down each 3 sides
Triangle 40 gauge Reverse Barb – purple, Pulls out fibre for fluffy finish, also pulls out underlaying colours.
Twisted needles – are a triangle needle that has a slightly twisted shaft, which spreads the barbs as they go into your project. This means that they felt quickly and covers a wider area without leaving too noticeable a hole behind.
Twist 38 gauge – have 6 barbs. The triangular cross-sectional working area of these needles has been twisted, which we find works faster and leaves less visible holes.
Twist 40 gauge -with 6 barbs, have a fine gauge, and a twisted cross-sectional working area, making them ideal for fine and finishing work.
