“New” Black Dog and Ginger Cat needle felting kits coming soon. Needle felting kits to suit every level of needle felter. The kits for complete beginners fall into two categories: Stage 1 – SUPER SIMPLE – for nervous beginners. Stage 2 – BEGINNERS – perfect for anyone. These are for really learning how needlefelting works and how you can work the wool so that it becomes a wonderful, sculptural medium.
Then, as you begin to learn and want to try something a bit more complicated there are : Stage 3 – CHALLENGING – these are designed to improve your needle felting skills, encouraging you to focus on sculptural form and more complex colour layering. They are for people who have had a bit of experience and now want to push themselves further. You could try these as a beginner but you might find them a bit frustrating and I would hate for that to happen. Then finally, at the top of our LADDER OF LEARNING, we have: Stage 4 – ‘OH SO VERY CHALLENGING’. These are really NOT for beginners. They are for people who understand well how needlefelting works and how the wool responds.
