Equipment for Sale
Here at WCFA, I have made some changes in my natural fiber practices, and am no longer using the equipment that I once used for felting. Hand felting is my passion, so I have decided to offer a variety of equipment for sale: Belfast Wet Felting Machine, FeltLoom Lexi, Wool Picker, and Pedro's Rollers.
Contact Heidi Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

I have been using this to make 3' x 3' panels. You just put down the batting, or wool, wet it down with Dawn and make sure it is completely soaked, then run it for 20 minutes. Turn it, run it again, keep turning it and turning the piece over until it gets to the type of felt you want. Usually one hour. There is a backup motor for the beast.
FeltLoom Lexi 36"
I flew to Kentucky and stayed with the owners and loved their set up. This is great for felting clothing. This machine is lightly used. I never really got into needle felting. I purchased a lite table for $500 that should go with this. It helps identify if you have any lite spots when you do a layout of felt. This came with me on the plane. There is a life guarantee with this machine. I have all the paperwork.

I used this all the time. There is now maintenance on it. It needs to be greased on the swing about every 6 months. This has been the most useful tool ever. Picked all the wool through this for the Fibershed Yurt top and many, many pieces I have made. It's such a simple design and effective.
