With the PFAFF® creative™ Felting Embroidery Set, you can create the most amazing felted embroideries. The effect is created when embroidering without threads but with a special needle that felt fibres together. The effect of the embellishment can be changed dramatically by using different types of fabric/wool.
In the box:
Just about any fabric can be felted with the creative™ Felting Embroidery Set, however, afterwards some fabrics tend to give a more favourable result when embellished or laundered.
The recommended fabrics are those made from natural fibres, such wool and wool roving. The best characteristic for fabrics is a napped or textured surface.
A napped surface will adhere to a natural fibre/napped surface/or mixed fibre base.
Avoid synthetics with “wash and wear” type of weaves and finishes that have a smooth surface.
The effect differs from fabric to fabric. Always test on a piece of fabric before you start.
When embroidering with the felting needles, no threads are used. The fabric is hooped with the right side facing down.
When embroidering free standing designs or when using wool roving, a water soluble stabiliser is needed.
