Needle Felters
Directly imported by NEFS, our Norwegian C-1 Wool is the best choice for needle felters. Once you use this wool you will never go back! A clean preparation and shorter fiber length results in faster needle felting and a smooth finished surface.

Wet Felters
The Short Fiber Merino Batt is heavenly! Not only is it the fastest felting wool you will ever use, but is also has the tightest, smoothest finished surface. Nuno felting designers and fiber jewelry artists love it.

About

the story of NEFS

“Our mission is to introduce and develop the unique medium of hand-made felt by providing the best quality and choice of feltmaking materials backed by in-depth knowledge.”

New England Felting Supply, abbreviated as NEFS, occupies the center of a 1920’s vaudeville theater in the heart of Easthampton’s Cultural District. Hundreds of colorful wools are stacked from the floor to the balcony. Many fibers are sold “general store style” where you can choose whatever amount you like from barrels and bins. Other items are pre-packaged.

NEFS opened in May of 2007 when feltmaker Christine White divided her feltmaking studio/business, Magpie Designs, into a separate retail store and a private art studio. White is the author of the best-selling Uniquely Felt, called “the feltmaking bible” by the Library Journal. The store has been modeled on the same principles found in the book which is to say, lots of information and plenty of examples.

NEFS has a thriving Local Wools Program where a number of wools from family farms are available for purchase year-round to help support the local economy. But perhaps the best known product lines includes our premier C-1 (a top grade classification from Norway) which many felters agree is the best needle-felting wool available and Short Fiber Merino Batts.

Short Fiber is special preparation of cut merino carded into batts (blankets) which makes the wool felt extremely fast and results in a much finer, tighter finish than merino top. NEFS is also the first importer of merino prefelt in the US and carries different colors and weights from multiple suppliers.

There is an year-round educational program too! This is a cornerstone of New England Felting Supply’s mission since it arose from a teaching studio. Instructors range in skill from beginning teachers who are encouraged to develop their skills during drop-in classes to the very best week-long workshops with international teachers from Canada, Finland, Turkey, England, Holland, Australia and more.

Browse our web-store and be inspired! If you can, stop by our brick and mortar location in Easthampton, MA to experience the astonishing theater full of color! Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Directions can be found on our contact page.

Thank you for reading and let us know how we can help you with your next felting project!

Have you visited New England Felting Supply?

We're the only retail store that caters specifically to feltmakers. Although roving is now available online and at a number of yarn stores, few can offer in-depth knowledge about wool characteristics and feltmaking techniques. The staff at NEFS is trained to explain details about the feltmaking process and to help customers choose the exact wool or blend for their project.

The entire store occupies the center of a 1920's vaudeville theater in Easthampton, MA, where hundreds of colorful wools are stacked from the floor to the balcony. Many fibers are sold "general store style" where you can choose whatever amount you like from barrels and bins.

NEFS opened in May of 2007 when feltmaker Christine White of Massachusetts decided to divide her 7-year-old feltmaking studio business, Magpie Designs, into a separate retail store and a private art studio. White is the author of the best-selling Uniquely Felt, called "the feltmaking bible" by the Library Journal. The store has been modeled on the same principles found in the book, with lots of information and plenty of examples.

But perhaps the best known product lines include its premier C-1 wool (a top grade classification from Norway) which many felters agree is the best needle-felting wool available, and the Short Fiber Merino Batts, which are only found at NEFS.

The Short Fiber batts are a special preparation of cut merino combed out into batts (blankets) which makes the wool felt extremely fast and results in a much finer, tighter finish than merino top. NEFS was also the first importer of merino prefelt in the United States and carries many different colors and two weights of this popular material.

There is an year-round educational program too. Christine considers this to be a cornerstone of New England Felting Supply since it arose from a teaching studio. Instructors range in skill from beginning teachers, who are encouraged to develop their skills during drop-in classes, to the very best week-long workshops with international teachers from Canada, Finland, Turkey, England, Holland, Australia and more. Instruction in many felting techniques can be found on our class schedule.
