Was not sure where to post this - I saw these mentioned on Facebook by a felter today - she had not used them yet. I ordered a bag of them - how could I go wrong for $5.88 - I have no idea how to use them in felting but figure someone here will let me know. Shipping takes several weeks - will post a photo when I receive them.

Indeed they are used quite often in spinning (by making a hole with a needle at one end and them guiding some fibers through it) and in mixed media. I saw one day a tutorial : wet them (which make them more flexible), take a thin layer inside the cocoon, cut petals in the lenght so that it makes a flat flower I think this flower could be felted this flower
