Over the past year+ that I’ve been needle felting  I’ve tried a lot of different kinds of fibers, but none of them have been able to give me as satisfying a result as the roving from Bartlett Yarns. This roving has a lofty, squishy feel, but is extremely easy to work with. A little goes a long way with these babies, so much so that I still have almost as much in my half-pound bag of Midnight Blue that I originally purchased almost a year ago (and yes, believe me, I’ve been using it wherever I can with my projects)! I’ve found that they work best as an over-layer on a sculpted piece or by itself with flat felting particularly because of what I find to be its most appealing quality: the flat, smooth surface you can get with less stabbing.

I love these, I love these, I love these, and it is genuinely an extreme effort for me not to hoard them all for myself. They’re a real pleasure to felt with, and I could not possibly recommend them more than I already do.
