Romney Ridge Farm Needle-Felting Kits.

At TNNA this past June, something unusual caught Anne’s eye: a collection of tiny needle-felted animals, made from wool roving. She was particularly taken with a little sheep, and spent one of our exhausted hotel-room evenings making one herself. Having never needle-felted before, and with written instructions alone, Anne created this little guy in about an hour.

These needle-felting kits come from Romney Ridge Farm in Maine. We couldn’t stop at sheep alone–not when there were chickens and songbirds and pigs to be had.

Come by the shop to pick up a needle-felting kit of your own, and before you know it, you’ll be felting a tiny menagerie!

    • Good question, Libby–felting needles are very sharp, so caution and supervision are important! The kits themselves note that “This project is not suitable for children without adult assistance and supervision.” I’d recommend giving it a try yourself first, which would give you a better idea of the skills and safety required, and how to share it with your children.

  1. I heard about a school which used breathing time to calm kids – the young children would choose a “breathing buddy” a favorite stuffed animal, lie down, put the breathing buddy on their stomachs and watch them go up and down as they breathed slowly. Wouldn’t these be just perfect.
