the little things ive felted so far have untameable fibers all over it. it gives it that fuzzy, not "clean" look.
this girl violet pie (http://violetpie.typepad.com/violet_pie/woolarama/) has such cute, clean looking projects.

Looks like she has firmly felted her sculptures.

Firmly needle felting is more about poking all over and not about how hard you poke into the wool. She most likely just gently needles her work all over, over and over again. You can also trim the fuzzies off with scissors.

It doesn't look like she's wet felted the surface of them (which you can do apparently using a little soapy water on your fingers and rubbing the surface).

Hope this helps?  Smiley
