A soft work surface is necessary so that the felting needle is protected when needle felting. Our foam pads are very firm and incredibly durable. They will hold up and not break down through many projects, which is one of the reasons we do not include them in most of our kits. Once you have a foam pad work surface you are will not need another for quite a while.
Woolpets charcoal foam pads are the perfect work surface for needle felting projects. These pads are firm, extra durable, and will last through many needle felting projects. The open-cell foam allows the felting needle to repeatedly penetrate the surface without it breaking down or falling apart. Other softer foam pads and sponges will quickly disintegrate, eventually leading to little pieces of foam in your projects.
This needle felting foam pad measures 6 x 6 inches and is 1.5 inches thick.
