I'm learning to spin but, inevitably, i'm ending up with bits & pieces of partially spun wool that have failed to make it to my bobbin Roll Eyes So i was wondering if i could use these to felt with Undecided needle or wet felting?
TIA

needle felting shall not be a problem with your wool. Wet felting need to be tested, But normally I would say it's no problem using them for felting.
The only thing you'll  need to do is unwind the thread, Or use the thread as a lining in your felted item.

Good luck!

If the media you were using to spin with, was able to felted, it should still be able to be felted.
But probably use it with the wool roving

I wet-felted my left-over spun singles into my felted soap without any problems



But you can save your spare bits of singles to spin coils into your yarn y'know.
(I hope to try coils today  Smiley)

If you've got a carder, you could easily reclaim the spun wool into fluff.

hey,
i have succesfully done it with both, usually felt needle it onto a flat surface, as an outline or some linear detail. and on wet felted pieces, just scatter it onto or between layers for a decorative effect, looks really nice n crazy sometimes
