12oz hessian, ideal for creating pictures, cutting up for needle felt bunting, card making and lots more, such as the felting mat below.

Make your own felting mat using hessian:

Available in the following sizes-



This is also great for making your own felting mat filled with rice or wheat. Sew a pouch or sack of a size to your liking, fill with rice or wheat grains so that you have a thickness of about 5-6cm. Sew up the open part and use this as a mat to felt on. This is a great way to be environmentally friendly and have a mat that lasts forever. If you fill it with wheat, you could even use it a heat cushion when your neck hurts after all the needle felting.

Some people like to double up the hessian but we have found it works well just as a single layer as the weave is too small for grains to pop out.

The only reason why we don't sell these bags ready filled, is because they weigh a lot and by using food we get involved in a whole new area that we are not equipped for.

Great for a 3D felting pad

Large enough to make several felting blocks/pads in various sizes and thicknesses- I was struggling with foam pads wearing out and this is the perfect solution!

Arrived this morning and I’ve already made one pad which is proving to be brilliant for my little projects!!

Great value

A lovely large piece of hessian with a very fine even weave. I've used it for backing for a 2D needle felted dog that I have added to an embroidery hoop.
