Hi I really fancy giving needle felting a go...

What materials and tools will I need to get started, and where can I source them.

Also, is it hard? Internet tips make it look easy but I bet it's not....where would I learn the basics? Book? Course? Internet?

I've always found Fibrecrafts/George Weil to be great for craft supplies:

I'd get a book or kit, and use YouTube. Years ago I had a lovely needle felting workbook, a sort of ring binder that came with a couple of needles. You can get fibre and needles from George Weil, IIRC.

I'm not an expert - it's not really my craft, but eveyrthing new I learn, I tend to get easiest from a combination of books and YouTube.

I had a kit from here which I really enjoyed. Actually, I think the first kit I had came from Hobbycraft for about £10 so it might be worth a look there.

I am not usually a fan of kits particularly but they are good for having a go at random crafts. The needle felting ones I've used came with everything you needed to make that one thing so there was no difficulty getting started.

Where are you ? I have some felting stuff you can have with pleasure.

Thanks guys, and thanks to you Flossy , I'm in Ireland so might not be worth the postage.

I got a kit first and then just bought the wool roving and needles etc separately. I use Pinterest for inspiration
