Review

Sharp, Laurie. "Wool Pets," Creative Pub.: Quayside. 2008. c.128p. ISBN 978-1-58923-385-0. pap. $19.95. FIBER CRAFTS Expert needle felter Sharp presents a collection of 20 wool figures, mainly animals, plus a couple of mythical creatures for good measure. Beginning with basic techniques for needle felting, Sharp quickly moves on to simple projects intended to get newbie felters comfortable with the tools and techniques. Unlike other needle-felting books, this one describes and illustrates each step of the process, which makes it easy for felters of all skill levels to replicate any of the creations in the book. With minor changes in color or shape, many of the basic patterns could be used to create different creatures (the goldfinch, for example, could become a cardinal). Highly recommended. - "Library Journal, August 2008"

This book was a, bit of as disappointment to me.
Firstly in the introduction it tells th he reader NOT to use merino wool tops for needle felting as merino wool is unsuitable for the task. This advice is completely contrary to any other book, blog,magazine article or class I have ever encountered. .I use merino wool all the time for needle felting and have had some fantastic results. Merino wool is easy to felt, relatively cheap and comes in a fantastic range of colours. Therefore I feel such advice is confusing for someone new to the craft.
I believe the author keeps her own sheep and uses their wool so that might explain this advice
The projects in the book are Ok but to me they have a fuzzy and unfinished look, again I feel this is down to the wool used.
I have several needle felting books and much prefer Spool Buddies to this book
I will probably try some of the projects but I will use them as a guide only .
I wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner or to anyone in fact , there are far better books on the subject

I bought this book along with 'I Felt Awesome' as an introduction to needle felting. I guess I was swayed by the penguin on the front!
There is a useful introduction to wool fibres at the beginning, this author uses fleece from her own sheep for her projects, which I think, after a little more reading into the subject and some practice, becomes apparent in the finished article. A lot of the projects just look a little too woolly and unfinished to me, but that is just my preference and felting style. I have ended up not using this book too much, prefering the technique and style of writing in the other book i purchased, but like I say, thats just my preference.
I wouldn't buy this book for a friend.
