There are many misconceptions about the process, and most woolen producers don’t use it at all.

The process is actually quite simple, with a few variations depending on the yarn, the color and the pattern.

For example, some felting yarns like white woolen are designed for use with certain colors and patterns, while other types can be dyed with more intense colors and require more time to felting a woolen garment.

Needle felters are usually experienced and have experience with dyeing wool, so they can tailor their work to fit the specific fabric requirements of the yarn.

There is no set time limit for felting, so you can felting in less than 15 minutes.

However, once you start, you’ll need to be careful to follow the instructions to ensure proper dyeing, to ensure that your needle felted garments will look good, and to make sure the fibers are not too short or too thick.
