Embellished Scarves

I purchased some plain wool scarves a while back. Today, I finally took some of the rainbow colored merino roving from The Fiber Studio and machine embellished the scarves using my Janome Xpression. It seems to take a lot of punching to get the merino to bond with the scarves. I wanted the fiber to migrate through to the other side very well. I wonder if the coarse needles in the Janome just don't grab the fine merino fibers well. I'll have to needle felt with some finer guage needles by hand to see if there is a difference. If that is the case, then I'll have to get the Clear Foot, Changeable Needle Unit from Janome and some finer guage needles from Fiberella. My wish list is getting a bit long.
