Doing a lot of needle felting (or planning to), and tired of buying foam that's not eco-friendly to begin with and wears out quickly? You will love wool felting mats so much more.
This needle felting mat is made from 100% wool and is a generous size at 11 in. x 11 in. and 1.5 in. thick (approximately). There is over 1 lb. of wool in this mat! It is a very sturdy work surface that will last for many projects.
We love this wool mat both for sculpting and for flat felting. In fact it is the best thing we've ever tried for flat, detailed pictures. Unlike foam, It holds up project after project without breaking down. We estimate that it can take 6 months of every day felting if you use both sides, and will last years for more infrequent felting. When it does eventually need to be replaced, because it is 100% wool you can compost it or find other uses for it.
We recommend this mat for all of our kits, but especially for "painting with wool" and "coloring with wool” (flat felting).
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD – Children under 3 years can choke or suffocate on wool. Keep away from children under 3 years.
