Candlewicking Fur

Needlepoint for Fun has an interesting article today about how to create slight tufts of fur using a technique that mimics candlewicking.

I highly recommend that the tent stitches under the candlewicking stitches be in wool or something else that offers a firm foundation.  You also should consider using glue on the back side and using this only on something that will not receive any wear.  A piece framed under glass is going to last longer without the candlewicking tufts of fur pulling or falling out.
