Product Description

Our felting tool has five barbed needles that catches the wool roving fibers and pushes them into the bottom of the fabric. The wool roving fibers stay permanently without using glue or sewing it. The tool comes with a clear lock cover for safety and storage.

Customer Reviews

This 5 needle however is a very useful tool.
JoAnn
The felting needle tool is just right for small projects and works swiftly to felt items together and decorate items with roving and yarn.
Philip C. Wei
Great tool for working large areas of needle felting.

I just got my felting tool in the mail, & have tried it out a little & it seems great-- I've also read many positive reviews on crafter's websites. I think this is probably going to be a handy & pleasant tool to use. My one problem with it is that Clover wants you to buy their special brush felting mat to use with the tool, for another $16 or so. Now, you do need something to felt onto, but I've just discovered that using a tightly-wound ball of scrap yarn (mine's wool, but I don't know why acrylic wouldn't work--cotton might be too hard & break the needles) works fine as a surface to felt into, as long as your applique isn't very big (because it's a curved surface & it might get tricky to felt something big--though I guess you could just do it in sections? I'll be experimenting... :-) Anyway, hope this tip helps someone out. Note, though, this WILL ruin the ball of yarn, so it should really be scrap!

Clover is a basic, no-frills brand that I've trusted in the past for bamboo knitting needles. This product seemed like a great idea.
It's got 5 needles instead of 1 to increase your felting ability. It also has a clear plastic cover which slips down over the needles after each "stab" to prevent injury. The needles are extremely sharp, so a built-in safety measure seemed a great idea, particularly for younger kids (age 8 + is recommended) who are learning to felt. But after about 15 minutes of use, 4 of the 5 needles bent and two broke off completely. I'm not particularly heavy-handed, they just snapped off. The steel is thin and brittle. Maybe we just got a bad batch? I am going to replace them once and see if the same thing happens. An update will follow...

March 15, 2013: I did purchase another of these multiple needle tools and tried slowing down a lot and going straight into the wool (not at an angle) as two helpful commenters suggested. But these really are fragile... it's the nature of the beast, I suppose. Ultimately, I've concluded that it's better to use one single felting needle, which offers greater flexibility and 4 fewer chances for breakage. Stands to reason that it's easier to poke one needle straight into the wool than 5. If you're a very gentle person and have particularly gifted hands, you could probably use this tool with success, but I really can't recommend it for children. I'm an illustrator and a decent cook and craftsperson with reasonably good fine motor skills, but this tool didn't work for me.

If you're new to needle felting as I am, and you're looking for beginner supplies on Amazon, this is probably not the right tool for you. It's for flat felting on fabric, but can be adapted for 3d sculptural needle felting - except that it's not the best tool for that and it's too expensive. There's a needle set by Wistyria here on Amazon that's more suited for sculptural needle felting, at about half the price.

That said, this tool is well made and easy to use - the guard helps prevent accidents (felting needles are sharp!), so if you're only doing flat felting, then go ahead and get it.

I wish I had done more research before jumping into needle felting - I ended up spending more money than I should have for the wrong tools. Yes, that's my fault, but I hope you'll learn from my mistake.

This is such a great product! It is comfortable to hold and easier to store than loose felting needles. I also bought the special brush pad to use with this, but in most cases I think this Clover felting tool works better with a normal felting foam pad underneath (so long as it's thick enough). The five needles are easy to switch out, and it can accommodate felting needles of different lengths.

this tool is small, but it works great for small projects. the five needles are housed inside of a 3/4" plastic safety ring, which must be unlocked for it to work. believe me, for 5 minutes i couldn't figure out why it wasn't depressing, only to realize i still had the safety on. the needles are VERY SHARP. i accidentally put one into my finger because i wasn't being careful with where i was jabbing and holding my wool.

4 stars only because i wish there were more needles in the head - you have to punch many times over the same area to get a secure effect.

This is a great needle felting tool! I love that it speeds up the process and makes it easier to felt faster. The locking mechanism is nice and it's very easy to change out the needles. I even bought a second one and heavier needles so that I have one full of fine needles and one full of heavy needles so that I can switch back and forth while making a project.

If you want to needle felt by hand, this is the tool. Accompanied by the needle felting mat, it makes it easy to make soft beautiful items.

Very disappointed in this product. I was using this for patterns on a dryer ball, and most of them bent within five minutes and I could not bend them back, the just snappped off. One actually snapped off in the ball.
