Felt two graceful Sperm Whales with this needle felting kit!
Make two Sperm Whales with this easy to follow needle felting kit. There is a video tutorial recorded in real time so you can confidently felt along with me.
In the video I show you step by step how to make your first whale. Starting with the basic whale body shape, you will learn how to apply the top colour and make the tail and fins. Finally you will learn how to sculpt the whale's face and shape it.
The kit contains enough wool to make two whales, so you can make the second one by yourself or follow the video again if you need to.
What's included in your kit:
The Sperm Whale kit contains core wool for the basic shape of the whales
Carded Corridale for the top colour x 2
2 felting needles in a 38 guage
4 x eyes
A Kraft envelope to keep your needles safe
Template sheet for quick reference to see what shapes and measurements you need.
You will recive a code to access the video tutorial, this will be on your template sheet. The video tutorial can be found in the header menu 'tutorials for kits'
PLEASE NOTE: I do not supply a felting base with this kit. These are available as an add on in the drop down menu.
Colours may change.
Who is the needle felting kit suitable for?
Suitable for complete beginners and those who are crafters already and who want to learn and develop their skills or just make something fun and simple!
Each whale has it's own character and because they are all individually made, they are all unique and original which is what makes them so much fun to make. (It also makes it quite an addictive past time and once you have the basic skills you can make whatever you conjure up in your imagination, or take inspiration from nature)
Are there any special requirements?
Good eye sight and somewhere comfortable to work is beneficial. A cup of tea also helps somewhat.
Children aged 11+ can needle felt with supervision from an adult due to the nature of the barbed needles being quite sore should you accidentially poke your finger with one. These are NOT toys, they are decorative ornaments. Keep away from pets too!
How long will it take to make?
Allow around 3 hours to make one whale.

Items are posted using Royal Mail 1st Class and proof of postage is obtained.
There is a 50p surcharge on all postage for packaging materials.
I post Monday to Friday.
I endeavour to make my needle felting kits and postal packaging as environmentally friendly as possible so please note the following:
I do not supply a foam felting base to work on. After a few uses they break up and get stuck to your work resulting in them being thrown in the bin. Instead, I use and sell hessian rice sacks which can be re used many times and then recycled. You need only purchase one of them and then any additional needle felting you do can be done on the same rice sack.
You buy the empty sack, fill it with rice and sew up the opening. The rice can be re used in a different sack and the old hessian will compost down in the compost heap.
Spare wool will be made good use of by the birds at spring time or you can compost down in the compost heap.
The postage packaging and felting kit packaging can be reused or recycled. The brown tape is recylable also.
Sometimes I recycle any plastic packaging I have to hand when posting the felting kits. It's not the most attractive but it does the job and keeps your kit clean and dry on it's journey to you.
Your kit inside will be presented and packaged with care.
