Explore these Australian resources

Garments and Gadgets sells Felting Finish and Wool Wash intended to restore some lanolin to your woolens, condition the fabric and ward off mmmmoths.

They also had wool nebs which were fun to add surface design to the felt. Check them out. Owners Jenny Lewis and Clare Parslow are knowledgeable and helpful.
Artisan Books had a most fascinating collection of felting books, among others. They stocked all of my books at TAFTA, and sold out of the recently declared "out of print" HAND FELTED JEWELRY AND BEADS.
Silksational had the best array of prefelts in pieces or yardage that I have seen anywhere. And Australians are NOT afraid of color. They also sell fabric, ready-to-dye clothing, sliver, and dyes.
And let's not ignore a bead source, in addition to Jelly Beads of Mogo and Penel Bigg's Firebirdbeads: Moblong Creations
