For Rooting or Re-rooting Doll Hair
INDUSTRY USES. Felting Needles are used in factories to make plush
fabrics, textured upholstery, carpets and many other specialty fabrics.
The needles are laid out in beds, just like the proverbial bed of needles
that the holy men have been rumored to lie upon in India. The needles
are barbed, besides being very thin and sharp, so you can imagine how
comfortable that would be.
FOR HANDCRAFTING. Felting needles have been used by crafters to make handcrafted felt
projects such as plush animals, fancy pillows and even dramatic textured hats and garments.
Felting needles have also been used to root the hair on beautiful artistic cloth dolls. The crafters
push the hair threads into the fabric and the barbs on the needles will tangle the hair threads on
the other side of the fabric, so it is "knotted" and will stay in place. This makes it much easier to
root a head of hair on a cloth doll.
