Needle Felting needles are sharp and fragile so it is essential to have a resilient work surface to protect the needles.
Our foam needle felting mat offers a bit of resistance to the needle and is sturdy enough to last for a few projects before needing to be replaced. The foam needle felting mat is perfect for everyday projects and is sold individually or in five-packs.
The small mat measures 7" x 5" x 1" and is made in Germany. The large size measures 11.81 x 7.08 x 1.57” and is also made in Germany.
The small mat is a good size for making individual pieces, such as a small felt animal, but if you are making a wool "painting" you may want to go with the large mat.
⚠️ WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs. Children who still put things in their mouths can easily bite off a piece of this foam and then inhale it or choke. Keep out of reach of all children under 3 yrs or any child who may still put things in their mouths.
Pros: Foam is much more Economical than wool or burlap
Cons: Needs replacing after a few projects, not eco-friendly; made from synthetic materials and not compostable
NOTE: Once we run out of these foam mats we will not be replenishing them and will only be selling the eco friendly, compostable burlap mat and wool mat.
