Sara's Goods & Faves

On this page you will find suggested products that will help with your felting journey.  We can't stock everything in-house but we definitely want to point you in the direction of things that Sara has found to be useful. 

We will also be including some fun Goods & Faves that Sara and the Sarafina crew loves!

This set of hair cutting shears will give you so many possibilities as you make long haired dogs, feathers, and more.

42 Teeth Thinning Shears

Delisa and Sabine's suggested thinning shears for your feathers and other sculptural fiber elements.



POSCA Colouring Markers

Earth Tones

Sara loves these for adding detail to the feathers.  (She also used them to paint her leather boots!)  This set has a wonderful range of earth tone colors.

POSCA Colouring Markers

Warm Neutrals

This set of warm neutral colors will hopefully be just what you need to enhance your feathers on your sculptures.

L'Oreal Elnett Hair Spray

Extra Strong Hold Unscented

Use this for your feathers to stiffen them a bit.  Also great for Milo's hair!


Mug Warmer - Option One

We have used these mug warmers for workshops and feel that they get the job done.  You will need a plate or dish to set on top for melting your Swax.

Mug Warmer - Option Two

This is Sara's favorite mug warmer and the one that she uses all the time for her Swax melting.  The lip is a little smaller and may allow you to use a wider range of dishes.

Lavender Spray

There are a lot of lavender sprays out there!  This is the one that Sara uses to spritz her critters to keep the moths at bay.  We make no promises that it will 100% work against stubborn moths but it is a great step towards protecting them!
