This small, spiral bound craft book offers a clear cut introduction to the art of felting, from which delightful dolls, needlebooks and decorated eggs and can be created. The book comes with instructions with line drawings for several projects and a couple of pages of resources for wool and other information to help foster the learning process. Ayala Talpau gets quite poetic with her thanks ("gratitude's" to "All the elves & faeries, trolls & nature spirits, mermaids & centaurs") and in a note to the reader, ("Dear one, we have become like friends, yes?"). The Felting Needle, with drawings, notes and explanations, is like a letter to a sister rather than an academic craft book. 10 small photographs on end pages.
