Needle Felted Sheep is 12" long, 8" tall and 6" wide. I handcrafted out of muslin, Sculpted her face then painted her, then attached a fleece of curly locks (locks vary depending on what animal I have recently sheared and washed) with needle felting. Plus I made a little black crow, with little wire feet to stand on her back

The wool used in this sculpture is produced and processed here at Liongate Farm


Needle felting is a popular fiber arts craft that creates felt without the use of water. Special needles that are used in industrial felting machines are used by the artist as a sculpting tool. They in fact have notches along the shaft of the needle that grab the top layer of fibers and tangle them with the inner layers of fibers as the needle enters the wool. Since these notches face down towards the tip of the needle, they do not pull the fibers out as the needle exits the wool. Once tangled and compressed using the needle, the felt can be strong and used for creating jewelry or sculpture. Using a single needle or a small group of needles (2-5) in a hand-held tool, fine details can be achieved using this technique, and it is popular for 2D and 3D felted work..
