Felting needle or needles (single or multi-needle holders)
Recommended to use size 36-46 - The finer the needles, the smoother the wool will become. While either a single or multi-needle holder can be used, you may find the single needle holder easier to use and to replace the needle if it breaks.
Foam felting pad or Felting Mat (9 x 9” / 23 x 23 cm foam felting pad was used)
Leather finger protectors, optional
