Use Orange as a finishing needle for all fibres, but particularly medium to fine wools.
Orange is great for:
- for forming a denser surface skin in 3-dimensional projects, for securing a surface veneer, and for minimizing puncture marks on the finished surface of both flat and 3-dimensional projects.
- for attaching fine and delicate embellishing fibres to any project. It causes the least amount of distortion in the embellishing fibres, and minimizes puncture marks. Use with a gentle stabbing action, which only penetrates to a shallow depth.
- to attach and secure wool in a loose way without making the wool look felted as in wool pictures.
- to secure fibres wrapped around wire or pipe cleaner.
