With the Husqvarna Viking 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 felts fibers together. The effect of the embellishment can be changed dramatically by using different types of fabric and wool.
Just about any fabric can be felted with the Felting Embroidery Set, however, some fabrics tend to give a more favorable result when embellished or laundered. The recommended fabrics are those that are made from natural fibers, such as wool and wool roving. The best characteristic for fabrics is a napped or textured surface. Avoid synthetics with wash and wear types of weaves and finishes that have a smooth surface. The effect differs from fabric to fabric. Always test on a piece of material 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 stabilizer is needed.
Three designs are available for free download. Each design represents a felting technique, Free Standing, One-Layer and Multi-layer embroidery. These techniques are explained below.
