This set includes 9 felting needles in three different sizes:
- Fine (3 pieces) 40 gauge
- Middle (3 pieces) 36 gauge
- Coarse (3 pieces) 32 gauge
These are your most important tool when needle felting wool. They have tiny barbs that allow the wool fiber scales to tangle and catch each other, causing the wool to felt. The longer you work the wool with the needles, the harder and thicker the felted piece will become. You can felt your wool into any shape or size you desire!
Please note that they do break very easily if used incorrectly at too steep of an angle or bend (order extra if children are helping you, you will need them!) Simply punch straight up and down in a pouncing motion to felt your project.
Please note these needles are very sharp, and you will be very upset if by accident your finger is in their path. Please handle with care-they are not suitable for small children.
Check out our leather finger gloves that protect you especially well when felting small items.
Sturdier than other needles I've purchased at craft stores. Will buy again!
Great needles and packaging
Very nice set of needles.
I never see the 32 gauge anywhere for sale so I'm glad I got to try it out. These needles are perfect for any project :)
I found what I needed for needle felting on the Acorns and Twigs website. It was easy to search and make a purchase, and I received my order quickly. Nice quality and colors of wool, and I was pleased with the price of the set of felting needles.
These are wonderful words to hear Kelly - thank you for sharing!
I am newer to needle felting, so I am still learning the techniques and tools needed for different projects. I have been having a hard time using two of the larger sized needle sizes in this product, as it tends to feel more "dull" and not felt as quickly. It is my understanding that different needles are needed for different projects, so this is likely user error! Love the packaging and the plastic coating on the tip of the needles.
Thanks Heather! Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions regarding your new hobby!
These are great. The best part is that they’re labeled for size which makes so much sense. I can’t believe other needle sets aren’t. Will keep these saved for future purchases
That’s great feedback Abigail! Glad you like it. :)
Feeling needles work great, few issues with the wooden holder. Could be the user. I may not have the needles in correctly. They keep falling out. The seller is very nice and helpful.
Hello Frankie. Thank you for you review. The wooden holder for felting needles does cause confusion sometimes. Have you noticed the plug has two different sizes? One is for when you store the need (as you received it) and the other is for when you are using the needle. If you are still having difficulties with your tool, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be more than happy to help you!

I needed some felting needles for a project I am making for my granddaughter. You had a much better price for these than other websites I checked. Thanks, It turned out so cute!
Thank you Kristina!
First, I have the advantage of living in Iowa, therefore my delivery was practically next day service. The product selections was fantastic. They offered just what I needed. My most favorite part of Acorn &Twigs, is the customer service I received. They sent out a follow up email making sure my order was satisfactory and a thank you. I felt the door was opened to send feedback or a question with the assurance of a response. Thank you! I will definitely order from them again.
Joann! It was a pleasure having you! Thank you so much for the lovely feedback - it is a great joy to have fellow Iowans here in our shop... Thanks!
