Yes yes, wool HAS been used for 3D sculpture already… but by traditional wet-felting techniques cumbersome , and only with certain fleeces, since most wools will not accept more fiber after a certain point in the wet-felting process.
Such inhibiting limitations! She had acquired a sample-sized needlepunch machine from an abandoned woolen mill there.
A nonwoven-fabrics factory worker clued me in: the first felting needle patents were dated AND… all this was occurring at the height of the Victorian era! Junky old second-hand stuff is too disgusting for words!! We could just swoon away at the thought….

A century later, however, social mores shifted and recycling is now so politically correct. That machinery has moved into the Group Consciousness! Nowadays artists even rent afterhours time on needlepunch machines, the better to create rugs and large wall hangings. Untold thousands of felting needle styles have been developed for industry, and with good reason-those huge machines use say , needles at once, a situation where a tiny difference is multiplied a thousand times over, for different fibers and different applications.
Wrote a couple workbooks with the hope of getting others to make some of the myriad items that needlefelting engendered in my imagination, and then maybe taking off into their own heavily populated fantasies.
Anybody with a flexible wrist who can be trusted with sharp things could be handed some wool and a felting needle, and it is such a delight to see what folks come up with! Even boys can be inveigled into the fiber arts by a felting needle! Moreover, all sorts of ghastly damage to fiber items can be repaired with a felting needle and an agile mind. No mistakes! High time to remedy that… Whatever type of wool one has at hand is the perfect kind for needlefelting.
Fiber differences lend their own special characteristics to what is made from them-like dancing with different partners. Believe me, a single needle can be finessed to perform ALL techniques. See accompanying chart. Sometimes it jiggles things loose to get other viewpoints. Once upon a time, I was an only child— but for just a little while, because shortly my parents produced a younger brother and sister. Everybody had to take naps, but not me! I was the oldest… So Mom taught me how to knit and sew bless your heart for that, Mom!
I made every mistake known to garment construction, on doll clothes. Even over meals I studied patterns, not willing to start until I had them clearly visualized every step of the way. A few decades later there was a retrospective exhibit of my work. Good grief! It leaped out at me how everything was all frozen up into perfection, motionless and lifeless as well. What a revelation! And so started the long journey to find my heart… Now I use my mind to conjugate French verbs and compose shopping lists.
This is irrelevant most times, the point more nearly being, How much perfection is necessary to communicate what I want to convey? Unless I want to hit someone between the eyes with my competence… then it seems like Ego gets the better of Art. I wish that I were gifted enough with words to carry you from this page to that place… It is gloriously overwhelming!
In the interest of continuity, let us make a circle or better, an upward spiral back to the matter of felting needles, which I have found to be the perfect tool for translating my visions into physical realms.
To think that animals need to develop nukes and bioweapons or any other effective tech to defend themselves from humans is ludicrous. TV watching is addictive. Humans can produce significantly more than twenty sounds; we have tens of thousands of such calls - each a word - each with at least one and often multiple meanings. Its consciousness will make it aware of its rights and it will attempt to claim them. They cannot keep pace with the progress of a global social enlightenment that is being brought about by technological advancements, not the least of those being the ability to communicate profusely en masse. Weve only been here for a million years or so.
Besides, wool seems to have an inherent sense of humor… how serious can one get with this stuff?? Now my dear, may I leave you with felting needle at hand, a basket of inviting wools in magical colors beside you, and a tune playing faintly that draws you three together for a delightful dance. The basic idea is to present a series of thought-provoking essays concerning the significance of felt in the 21st Century by depicting all aspects of Felt as fulfilling needs of society today. Answers lie in our own imaginations. Ayala has been ordained. She performs marriages, Blessing Ways, wakes, and ceremonies for other life passages.
