Groz-Beckert Premium Felting Needles - Twisted 40 - pack of 5 (Blue)The Crafty Kit Company
Top quality felting needles made in Germany by Groz-Beckert, a needle manufacturing specialist.
These are Twisted 40 Gauge needles with 6 barbs, which come as a pack of 5 in a sealed envelope. Fine-gauge, and with a twisted cross-sectional working area, these are ideal for fine and finishing work.
A quick guide to needle gauges:
Heavy gauge needles are the ‘work horses’ of the pack and will felt quickly. They are not suitable for very small or delicate items and will leave ‘stab holes’ in the work. Gauge 32 would be classed as ‘heavy’.
A medium gauge needle such as a 36 or 38 is a good size for general felting.
Fine gauge needles such as 40 are good for fine work and finishing off.
Different needles have different numbers of barbs. More barbs = quicker felting. Fewer barbs = greater accuracy.

Great felting needle
These needles are great for finer details and smoothing our bumps and lumps. Its great to have them colour coded too, to help identify the different needles and their uses. There is usually a helpful guide to the colours in the kit books but if you are ever unsure of what needle to use, you need only ask, this Company is helpfull.
