These dense, charcoal grey foam pads make a perfect needle felting work surface. Needle felting involves the use of very sharp felting needles and it is essential to a have a durable yet resilient surface to work on. These pads take the abuse of those sharp needles while providing a stable work surface. Softer foam, such as upholstery foam, can cause your project to bounce with each stab of the needle making it difficult to work with – and difficult to focus on. You are sure to have more accidents with your felting needles if your project is bouncing around so a stable, resilient surface for needle felting is a great idea.
We get our foam from Bob’s Foam Factory and it is called 8020 Black 1-1/2″
