Okay, so I’ve become a little obsessed with needle felting.  I don’t do it.  I don’t have the skills; so I’m very impressed with the people who do.  Sculpting a 3-D figure out of what is really just strands of fiber is amazing to me.  I thought you might like it as well, unless you’re allergic to wool…  but if that’s true, you can still appreciate art on the interwebs.  I’ve found for you 10 incredible uber-nerdy felting feats on Etsy and tumblr.

The definition of felting, in case you wanted to know:

Needle felting is a process which uses barbed needles to interlock wool fibers to form a more condensed material. Wool fibers have scales which when rubbed against each other catch and lock into place to create this denser material called felt. Felting needles are used to entangle the fibers.
