36 gauge / 3x3x3 barbs / 3 inch length (8cm) / fast
Use Green for early stages of felting coarse (cross-bred) wools. Green can also be used with medium wools such as Corriedale and Halfbred where the presence of pronounced puncture marks is not an issue.
Green has close barb spacing for fast action.
Green is great for:
- for quick securing of unfelted fibres in thinner batts and 3-D projects.
- for quickly forming deep depressions in softly felted balls.
- to quickly draw fibre right through flat felt and leave a "hairy" texture on the underside.
- for rooting hair on a plastic (vinyl) doll's head, also Blue
Green has high penetration resistance and becomes difficult to use as felt becomes firmer, so change to needles such as Pink or Red
