About us

About us we are a small family business that provides a range of needle felting supplies. We stock beautiful British needle felting wool as well as kits for all your needle felting needs. We have been in business for over 6 years supplying needle felting kits from beginners to more experienced needle felters.

You’ll be amazed at how simple the craft of needle felting is – it’s just so easy and relaxing.  Making is part of who we are as human beings and crafting something 3D and solid from wisps of wool is a very positive, comforting and communal thing to do. And this is why we love it and want you to love it too

Here at black dog & ginger cat, we design needlefelt kits for absolute complete beginners through to those looking for lots of challenge.  
The kits for complete beginners fall into two categories:
Stage 1 – SUPER SIMPLE – for nervous beginners.  
Stage 2 – BEGINNERS – perfect for anyone. These are for really learning how needlefelting works and how you can work the wool so that it becomes a wonderful, sculptural medium.
Then, as you begin to learn and want to try something a bit more complicated, we have designed:
Stage 3 – CHALLENGING – there are designed to improve your needlefelting skills, encouraging you to focus on sculptural form and more complex colour layering. They are for people who have had a bit of experience and now want to push themselves further. You could try these as a beginner but you might find them a bit frustrating and I would hate for that to happen.
Then finally, at the top of our LADDER OF LEARNING, we have:
Stage 4 – ‘OH SO VERY CHALLENGING’. These are really NOT for beginners. They are for people who understand well how needlefelting works and how the wool responds.
