12-inch (30cm) x 4 colors of wool roving or sliver
We are using 100% pure New Zealand Corriedale wool sliver.
Merino wool top is too fine for this project.
🌿💡 EcoMaker tip: source local sustainably produced non-mulesed wool.
Dye your own wool and felted objects using eco-friendly natural dye processes.
1 x LED sequin
uncoated silver or copper wire (length: 50cm, gauge:0.2mm or 30SP)
🌿💡 EcoMaker tip: use copper wire stripped from an old audio cable.
3V battery: coin, AA, AAA, or Lipo (rechargeable is ideal) with matching battery holder, with or without a switch
Alligator clips to connect wires to battery (optional)
Felting foam or mat
🌿💡 EcoMaker tip: use 100% wool felted mats or plant-based (corn or soy) foams.
38 star or triangle felting needle
Both needles work well for bulk sculpting work and finer detail. *EcoMaker tip: extend the life of your needles by preventing needle breakage. Poke gently into the mat, just touch the surface, don’t punch deeply into the foam/mat.
Single needle holder (optional)
🌿💡 EcoMaker tip: use holders made from biodegradable and sustainably harvested materials such as wood.
Finger cots/protectors (optional)
🌿💡 EcoMaker tip: make your own finger cots by upcycling old rubber or leather gloves.
