Hello! Thank you so much! I hope you dont mind that I publish this in case anyone else has a similar question!
My felt things certainly arnt as smooth as some others I’ve seen! Mostly because creating a perfect surface on the felt take many many hours! I stop after a reasonable amount of time just so they dont look too hairy!
Besides time, another thing that can help with the fuzzies is to have many different sizes of needle. I work with two or three sizes with each piece. The larger grooved needles are for the bulk of the felting. This is to get the pieces into the shape you want. The smaller needles are for detailing! They will really help in felting in the extra fuzzys.
Lastly, and I think the most important is to trim your pieces with a sewing scissor! Try and get on with really small blades. Trimming at the end is really helpful but your felt piece has to be well felted first, or it will fall apart when you cut the wool!
I hope this helps!
P.s- really adorable job on those alpaca figures you made Soreyal and Moccoe! So cute!!
