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 and 42 are good for fine work and finishing off.
Different needles have different numbers of barbs. More barbs = quicker felting. Fewer barbs = greater accuracy.
