Pom Pom’s are a great way to use up any leftover yarn. What’s even better is that you can create “images” inside your Pom Pom depending on how you wind the yarn. Clover’s Pom Pom makers make it easy!

Have you tried to create unique designs with your Pom Pom Maker? We’d love to see!

Needle Felting Tools

Needle Felting Tool: Our Needle Felting Tool 5 barbed needles. Protective cover with locking ability.The tool has a spring type action which allows the fibers to mesh with the base fabric. The tools we have for felting are some of the safest found on the market, safer than using the needle itself. This is perfect for working on larger projects, cover more surface area faster

Pen Style Needle Felting Tool: Perfect for smaller delicate projects.The Pen Style Needle Felting Tool allows application of small or delicate materials using one, two, or three needles. The tool can be adjusted to two length of needle sizes that can be used with the Needle Felting Molds (sold separately) for creating 3-dimensional design and applique. The handle offers ease of use because of the “Pen Style” grip action. Easy replacement of thick and thin needles. Gauge 40.

Single Needle Felting Tool (Speed Needle): Easy-to-hold design allows for detailed work with “pinpoint” accuracy. Great tool for 3-D design work.
