Wool yarns that I use for Needle Punch

I really love needle punch.  When we were in Maine I started playing around with the different types of wool yarn that I have a lot of in my stash.  Shown here is crewel yarn, yarn from England (white band solid green color) and my own which is in balls.  I mixed them into my current project and really liked the different textures they and look they gave my design.  Biggest problem was adjusting the yarn height so it blended.  I still like mine best because it is variegated-ish and I love the dimension it adds to my pieces.

Many use cotton floss used most commonly in embroidery work.  I really like the way wool looks and feels.  I also think that wool will stand the test of time and hold its color and shape.
