QUESTION: Do felting Needles get dull and have to be replaced?
ANSWER: YES! They do get dull, but there is no formula as to when to replace them! It all depends on the wool that you use, your style of felting, the pad, and time involved. If it seems to take longer to felt than it used to, then it is time for NEW needles. My first felting needle lasted 3 months and I used it all the time. Now I ONLY use DELUXE SUPER DUPER felting needles made by Kay Petal! They are TERRIFIC! They have a nice soft handle to grip so the needle doesn’t dent your finger! You can felt lots longer this way! AND now she has DOUBLES!! Yes two needles in one handle! Great for felting areas TWO times FASTER!
She even color codes them so you always know which is which. The are TOTALLY worth the money and they will spoil you!!LOL! She calls them Super Duper and they DO live up to the name!
Tell her Gerry sent you! Happy Felting!
