Salamander Tracks

The Salamander, muse and mascot to the Salamander Feltworks and #46 in the gallery. A being of pure light and fire, the Salamander was well over a week on the felting bench—each stripe is an individual work of art.

Welcome to the Salamander Feltworks, where fiber and imagination blend to bring a world to life via the craft of needle felting. Needle felting takes advantage of wool’s natural tooth—the little flanges along each hair that make it want to hold on to its own kind—to build solid structures out of fluffy wisps. For more on the process, see In the Workshop.

Is there a creature in your heart or home that you’d like to immortalize in felt? A pet? A mythological or heraldic beast? Something from a song or dream or story? Bring it to the Salamander, and help it come alive for you....
