This simple wooden tool is designed for use with the super sharp, barbed felting needle.
The holder consists of two parts. The comfortable wooden handle has been fashioned to include a guard so that your hand does not slip forward onto the needles. The other part of the holder has four holes in which to insert the needles and screws easily into the handle.
When everything is screwed securely into place, the felting needle holder provides a safe and sturdy handle for needle felting fibres and embellishments.
If you are working in detail, you can use the felting needle holder with just one needle.
