How to Needle Felt Wavy/Curly fur

Would you like to know how to quickly and easily needle felt wavy/curly fur?

In this video tutorial I show you how to create realistic luscious, textured waves of fur as seen on my spaniel’s floppy ears!

There’s no need to use curling tongs or make plaits or wind wool around knitting needles, waiting hours for wet curls to dry or even having to buy additional locks of curly wool. In fact all you need is just your wool (I use merino tops), your barbed needle and your fingers to make a twist!

I’ll also give you additional tips on blending wool colours!

This technique can be used on many needle felted animals. I hope you have fun with it like I did!

Here are the time stamps to easily navigate to the bits you would like to watch most :

I hope you enjoyed it and it gave you some new ideas.

What animal do you think are you going to add wavy fur to? please let me know in the comments – I’d love to know. 🙂

In my next video I’ll show you how I made his eyes.
