I'm brand-new at needle-felting (just got my needles in the mail today!) and while I've read most of the tutorials here and the stickied resources thread, I'm still confused about where to get some of the materials. 

The tutorials I've read all call the white wool that is used as the core of the project "wool batt" but so far as I've seen, none of the websites sell anything that is simply called "wool batt."  I know those websites mostly cater to multiple kinds of crafts - spinning, wet felting, etc - but I know nothing about fibers, so I'm wondering, can anyone tell me exactly what I need and point me at a website or two where I could buy it?  I'm good on the colored rovings and stuff, just confused about the batt for the core of projects.

Thank you!  Smiley

I get mine from here:

You have to call to place the order, and the ladies in the shop are more than happy to answer any questions and help you pick what kind of wool you need.

Have fun!

Hands down the best resource for wool "core" batt is West Earl Woolen Mill in PA. They price out at about $5-$6 per pound plus shipping. No website. Call them at 717-859-2241
