Felting needles 40 triangle for fine detail
£2.50 – £6.50
40 gauge triangle is ideal for much finer detail: Bends more easily so don’t be heavy handed with it.
I use this when I am finishing delicate eye and nose detail (the 38 is still fine for this), especially if the head is quite soft and I don’t want to distort the lovely shape I have made. It is also great for reducing needle marks on the top layer. You will notice that this needle is thinner, bends more easily than the 36/38 and is much more prone to breakage if bent too much. Top tip: Be careful if using it around a wire armature to avoid breakage.lincolnshirefen
