Needle Felting

I am interested in dollmaking. "Lalunia," (la-loon-ya) after all, means little doll in Polish. But I have yet to make one. In my research I've encountered many different art forms in which dolls are made. There's ball joined dolls, polymer clay dolls, cloth dolls and needle sculpted dolls. When I was looking into this last kind I was thinking of the kind made from pantyhose; however, when I typed "needle sculpture" into the YouTube search bar what came up surprised me and really piqued my interest. It was something I had never heard of before called Needle Felting, seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcfbgtyrz2U

There's a website about it too:

While I think I'll start with a cloth doll (probably a pattern from http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/) needle sculpting with wool is something I would really love to look into!
