Piercing tufts of raw wool hundreds of times using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs to sculpt various shapes and figures.

Felting Needles

Felting Needles of Various Sizes and a Block of Foam

With these tools and a good supply of wool, you are set to felt to your heart’s content! I would recommend some great tutorials on YouTube as well as picking up excellent Felting Books like Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Fuzzy Felted Friends at your local library.
