For those of you who go by gauge numbers, here is a comparison with our sizes.
- Blue, Coarse = 32 triangle. The working length is long and the barbs larger. This is useful at the very beginning of the felting process.
- Violet, Medium = 36/38 triangle. The working length is long and straight, making this a general purpose size for the bulk of general felting.
- Red, Fine = 38/40 triangle. The working length is long and straight. For general felting and adding detail.
- Gold, Extra fine = 40 triangle. The working length is shorter. Use for very fine detail and to smooth the surface of the finished piece.
