All of these projects are made from wool roving.
Wool roving is wool that has been sheared, washed,
carded and dyed (sometimes) and it is soft and fluffy.
The next stage would be to spin it into yarn.
Wool roving is felted by piercing it repeatedly with
a very sharp barbed needle, needle felting, or by
agitating it in hot soapy water, wet felting.
The needles used for needle felting are
extremely sharp (and you should use extra caution for
yourself and for your kids) but it is possible for children
to enjoy these projects with adult supervision.
Seeing the process of fluffy wool roving turn
into a sturdy felted object or picture is
magical so I hope you'll give it a try!
The Magic Onions has a nice post about beginning
needle felting with kids that uses a cookie cutter. This
is a great method to get started with and also a nice
way to add appliques to other felted wool projects.
