100% Natural Sheep Wool Needle Felting Pad - for precision felting

This pad is made from natural, un-dyed sheep wool. It is specially felted by machine using heat and moisture for the perfect density for use in precision needle felting. This process results in a consistent, workable surface area, and aids in the prevention of over insertion of the needle into the pad during felting. When softer surfaces are used, the needle carries the fibers deep into the pad, fastening the project to the work surface. The densely felted fibers of this pad helps prevent this.

  • 10" x 8" x 1" workspace to accommodate any felting project.
  • 100% natural, un-dyed, pure wool felt. The sheep wool is sourced from Central America. Color is a neutral gray, but as this is a natural product, color may vary slightly from what is pictured.
  • This pad has been wet felted by machine using heat, moisture and pressure. This process ensures the perfect density and durability required in a felting pad.
  • The density of this pad helps to prevent the deep embedding of fibers better than softer felting pads, burlap bags, or foam cushions.
Most pads on the market are soft and mushy, which results in projects becoming stuck to the pad, and creates difficulty in felting a flat, smooth surface. This is because the needle encounters no resistance on these other pads as it goes through the back of your project, carrying the fibers deeply into the pad where they remain. The barbs of felting needles are designed to carry the wool in one direction only. So when the needle travels beyond your project, it carries the wool with it, and your project becomes more and more fastened to the pad with each jab of the needle. This is common with soft mushy pads made of foam or lightly felted wool, as their softness allows the needle to go in too deeply.
The Desert Breeze felting pad is made of firmly felted wool. When the needle is jabbed through your project, the resistance in the pad prevents over-felting, resulting in cleaner, smoother surfaces on the back side of your project. This is especially helpful when felting feathers, ears, or any smooth flat project or parts thereof.
The Benefits of a Firm Felting Pad


  • Gently press the needle through your project and stop when you feel the needle touch the pad.
  • Please note: Working with this pad will feel different than most other needle felting pads on the market. The density of this pad is what helps prevent the needle from carrying the wool too deeply into the pad.
  • The felted wool surface of this pad allows the tip of the needle to enter, but slows the needle down as the barbs reach the surface of the pad.
  • A light touch is all that is needed for a smooth, tight, precision felted finish.

    Love this soft but sturdy felting pad. If you're looking for an eco-friendly option to replace the typical foam board options out there, this is it!

    So pleased with the Felting Pad that just arrived. It makes the felting needle just slide in and out very quiet and smooth.

    I absolutely love this pad. I'm a big fan of felted wool pads and this is the best I've come across! I love the thickness. It has just the right amount of give. Please make it available in a smaller and extra large version. I've told all my felting friends about it.

    First time using a wool pad vs foam pad. Love the difference and won’t go back. Fits nicely in my lap and is safe to use.

    This felting pad is the absolute best. I did a lot of research reading about the different felting mats and their pros and cons before I decided to purchase this mat. I am so glad I purchased this one. It is very sturdy without being too firm. I love the size and believe it will last a long time. I have had no issues with the felt getting caught in the mat or needles breaking. A fine product!

    If you need a felting pad, this one is the best! I have tried the plastic foam pads and they just thin out and don't hold up over only a few uses. The Desert Breeze pad is sturdy and large enough to rest your hands and wrists on. So glad I found this, and I see that this pad will hold up for a long time.

    Works better than anything I’ve used before! It doesn’t shed or leave straggling roving. I really like how hard the surface is .!
