This was exactly the product I needed to repair some moth eaten woollens. Plenty of wool for small jobs, Love that you can choose your colours.
Buying this fleece gave me the confidence to try needle felting. The quantities are perfect and a great range of colours (though I'd love to see a bright yellow join the collection). Love the thoughtful packaging!
The egg carton wool fleece is a wonderful quality, great colours and has such fun and eco friendly packaging. Well priced and a joy to use.
I love having my egg carton around the sewing room. It engages my children's imagination about recycling/upcycling and because they are familiar with the egg carton, they were not shy to open it up which led to them wanting to learn felting.
My son fixed up his own hole in his favourite Lego t-shirt.
Huge amount of wool, cleverly packaged, and much cheaper than well known chain stores.
Wool fleece is puffy, fluffy wool that has been scoured (cleaned) but not spun into yarn – perfect for needle-felting repairs. Corriedale wool fleece (30 micron) is coarser than merino and sticks to itself more readily, making it easier to felt with.
I’ve chosen a dozen delicious colours for the Modern Mending fleece range, so it seemed natural to package them in preloved egg cartons. If you select the dozen you’ll get all 12 colours and have enough wool fleece to last you years. For the half-dozen, you'll get six surprise colours chosen by me. Each fleece ‘egg’ weighs just under 3g.
This product is 100% wool* produced and processed in New Zealand from New Zealand Corriedale sheep that have been well cared for and not mulesed. It is packaged in repurposed egg cartons collected from my friends and neighbours and is available until I run out of egg cartons.
Want to see how it’s done? Modern Mending the book includes more than 20 pages of detailed needle-felting instructions, tips and inspiration.
