I love these painted wooden needle holders, in gorgeous rainbow shades!  They not only look pretty but they are so useful too to identify your different needle types, when you've got lots on the go.


The kit also includes a great selection of 35 needles to get you started on your needle felt projects, or to replenish supplies so you can keep on stabbing!  Each needle size and type has a different colour shank so you can easily know which is which, with a handy guide to felting needles and a colour reference guide to identify the needle type by the shank colour.  Each holder also comes with a standard (uncoloured) 38G triangle needle, so you'll have 8 more to keep you going!  And it all comes packed in a storage box.


Triangle needles are the standard felting needle, included in most kits.  The higher the gauge (G), the finer the needle.  A coarse needle (eg 36G) will felt faster whereas a fine needle (eg 42G) will give a better finish to your work (less visible holes).  Star needles have more sides, and therefore more notches, for faster felting.  Spiral needles also work faster whilst giving a smoother result by twisting the fibres.  Conical needles are triangular but taper continuously from shank to point: combining the power of a big needle with a fine tip improves needle guidance, reduces initial puncture resistance and leaves a subtler funnel-shape dent, ideal for densifying delicate areas and for shallow-tip finishing.

  • 8 x painted wooden felting needle handles, in red, orange, yellow, lime, aqua, blue, rosy pink and purple (with 8 uncoloured 38G triangle needles)
