My Felted Herdy needle felting kits March 20, 2013 18:33

We have these new My Felted Herdy needle felting kits just in from the UK.  The kit contains wool, felting needles and photo instructions. We tested one out this past weekend and made this little gal.  She still needs a name and buddies.  We understand sheep like buddies so  we are working on getting one for her.  This kit is a bit different than our other needle felting kits.  Herdy uses a rustic wool yarn for the main body shape unlike typical wool roving.  The yarn is poked with the needle just like we would do with more typical wool roving.  The kit indicates it takes about 8 hours to complete but we finished in about 4 hours.  The illustrations were helpful for making the feet but we struggled a bit with the head and ears.  However, we like our gal a bit unique.
