Yes, they're made from really thin braided wire, glass beads and wool
Here's a better picture of the crowns earfox.se/onewebmedia/schackse…

Wow, these are really really nice.
Do you know if raw wool is available at Hobbylobby or Michael's, or some other store? I really would like to avoid ordering online if possible, and I've been wanting to try needle felting for quite some time now.
And do you know where I could get a felting needle?
