Favourite kit I've ever made! (An elevated needle felting experience...)

I absolutely loved making this octopus kit. I had been looking for a while for an octopus kit but couldn't seem to find any - I then came across this one and couldn't resist! I had showed my dad needle felted octopus designs before (just by looking on the internet) but this was the one that he instantly thought looked great and I have absolutely no regrets.

I have never felt (touched) such luxurious wool - it is honestly so soft and lovely to use. I have tried quite a few kits now from other well-known brands though I am still learning but the wool has never felt this good - I realise now what a difference it can make. I didn't even realise that core wool could feel that soft - I want to get more (update: I have since bought the Lanolin Rich Core Wool from The Makerss because it is hard to go back to other types of core wool now lol - you should definitely try it! The Fox Red Variegated NZ Merino that comes with the kit is lovely too - I am now converted to carded wool now too as I don't think I'd tried it before [if I have, it certainly hasn't been anywhere near as nice as this] and from now on, it will be the main type I use, along with the Lanolin core). Honourable mention to the Luxury Red Pipe Cleaners which I used for the first time too - so fluffy!

Plus, in the YouTube video, Steffi recommends using a 38 twisted needle and that is soooo good for this project as it felts so nicely with the wool. Before now, I have mainly just stuck to triangle needles as I couldn't really tell much difference? But, let me tell you, the 38 twisted is a new fave now as it worked so nicely with this wool. Certain wools make certain needles shine (and vice versa) - that's one of the things I have learnt. Pure ASMR. I loved having the YouTube tutorial to go along with it because I am very much a visual learner and sometimes I can get a bit confused when just reading instructions (of needle felt kits in general)... it was my first proper make-a-long and it was so much fun! I didn't end up using the bit of dragon mix that was provided because I liked the octopus as it was (looking red all the way around) but I am excited to use it for something else.

Customer service has been super lovely too - I had actually contacted them about advice for a different project but they've been very supportive about the octopus too (I didn't ask for any advice regarding the octopus but I mentioned that I was completing it and they were rooting me on).

As an extra thing, I also got a piece of chocolate with the kit which was a nice surprise. I think I may have used a bit too much red at the beginning so I had to stretch that out a bit and the most difficult part for me was the webbing but I am so happy with how this octopus turned out. The effort was so worth it and I learnt a lot - this is my first completed project using armature too! It was a gift for my dad's birthday but I got the gift of making it, which was just as worthwhile.

P.S. My mum and little sister loved that the suckers were there when the octopus was turned over - they weren't expecting it and they thought it added so much :)

Loved this

Really high quality materials and very good instructions. Was super happy with how it turned out. Great for a beginner like me!

Unusual make

This was a fun make, clear instructions and great quality materials. Amazing pipe cleaners!

Marvellous mollusc kit

I love making the octopus, probably one of my favourites so far. There are good instructions but I wondered if some of them were missing a bit as my octopus did not quite look like the one in the kit and appeared to be missing some of the features, this is why it is only a 4 star review. Good kit though and also there's a Makerss video on YouTube too if you get stuck.
