Am I on the wrong discussion board? I just need a little advice since I am new to this.

Hi! are you adding the yarn as an embellishment?  I've added some as surface decoration    , but nothing more complicated Wink  To do that, I just laid it on the surface and made sure there were fibres on top to hold it in place before felting.  If you want it to work as a fringe, I would guess you would have to keep part of it separate (wrapped), a much more complicated task!

Are you wet felting the purse, or knitting and then fulling in the washing machine?
If you're wet felting, Msp's right, it will adhere if you just make sure to cover with a veil of wool.  If you're knitting/fulling, just carry the eyelash fiber with the other yarn as you knit:

Maybe you can needle felt your yarn afterwards on the felted purse. This way you'll total control of the embellishment pattern. I often do it with embroidery thread, it's ok. It joust needs a biet longer to adhere to the felt than wool.
