40 gauge / 3x3x3 barbs / 3 inch / fast
Use Brown for medium wools, such as Corriedale and Halfbred, and other fibres of similar diameter such as human hair and Hemp, and for fast, early-stage felting of fine wools such as Polworth and Merino, and other fibres of similar diameter such as Alpaca, Silk, and fine manmade fibres such as rayon, Soy silk, and Ingeo if they are being used for the bulk of the project or surface irregularity is not an issue. This needle is not recommended for attaching fine embellishing fibres.
- for sculpturing prominent depressions when Lime is too coarse and for sculptural projects when forming nostrils and eye sockets with a jiggling action. For similar but softer action change to Cream.
- for preparing and positioning medium wool fibres prior to wet felting in a similar manner to recommendations for the Green needle and coarse fibres.
- for quickly adding rough surface textures and embellishments in medium and fine wool projects, but is more inclined to leave a pitted surface than other 40 gauge needles.
