Needle felt "furring" new and old critters
I think there is a ton of potential in this technique allowing for even more diversity in color and texture combinations . I'm not bored yet : ) Some fibers matt up a bit and give a wooly feel to the animal and some look like more natural "hair" . After each section that I reverse needle, I stop and pull out any small loose hairs and then do another section . The more reverse felting. the denser the fur but you can give it the "worn mohair teddy bear" look by randomly pulling out small section . I like mine as fuzzy as possible .
