• Creating enough tension in the fabric to be punched is a must. If you place it in a thin, round embroidery hoop amd it won’t stay put, bind the hoop (either inner or both rings) in thin fabric to create friction between fabric layers. Finalise by tightening hoop screw with small screwdriver.
• It pays off to experiment, double thin yarns, combine different materials in the same project and at the same time investigate what lurks in a potential stash of leftover yarns.
• Do remember wool’s natural tendency to felt, which may feel like a nicer option compared to for example cotton yarn, especially if you’re trying needle punching for the first time. Online you can find many projects made with cotton though, so it’s possible to have success with this as well.
• You can finish the wrong side (straight portion of stitches unless you turn around the piece when working on it) with textile glue, but some people put glueless, with wool yarn decorated clothes in the washing machine without having stitches come out. Try what works for you.
