Buying Fiber for Felting
There are lots of places to buy fiber. These are my favorites!
PORTLAND, OREGON STORES
Pearl Fiber Arts - locally grown and dyed fibers. They also sell the 21.5 micron merino that I use in my wet felting classes.
Gossamer - good local source for needle felting fibers in lots of colors. Online or Portland shopping by appointment.
Twisted - needle felting fiber and tools.
Pacific Wool and Fiber (in Newberg) - many different varieties of wool in natural colors + needle felting supplies and fiber.
OTHER MATERIALS WE USE IN CLASS
Oregon Leather Co. - leather by the pound for making your own slipper soles.
Fiber Trends - pre-cut and pre-punched suede slipper soles (or pads).
Georgie's Clay Co. - liquid latex for painting on slipper bottoms.
Uline - 1/4" packing foam for resist material (comes on an 85' roll).
Biokleen all natural dish soap, olive oil soap - available at food co-ops, natural grocery stores.
Rug non-slip mat - brand not important, this is just an example.
Pencil Roving - very fun to incorporate into both wet felting and needle felting!
