Felting Needles - Twisted Triangle
These are a triangular blade with a twist or spiral. Some needle felters like these as they find that they go into the fibre easier and in some fibres leave a much smaller hole. Plus they may be less likely to break if not used in a perpendicular action.
These needles allow the pre-felting process to take place without the need for soap and water, as well as being used to create 3D forms. To do this they have a series of barbs along the working edge that grab the fibres and move them around. They are produced in different thickness gauges; the larger the needle gauge the finer the needle.
Whilst all of our needles will tolerate a small amount of bending, too much and they will break. As such a straight in and-and-out action will ensure a long life for the needle. A well used needle will wear out the barbs before it breaks.
All our needles are high quality European manufacture, not low quality far eastern made.
All needles are supplied in secure safety slide lock boxes. This will be added to your basket automatically.
These needles, like all sharp tools, need treating with care. They are not suitable for use by children without close supervision. Please keep these needles in their boxes when not in use.
