This 100% merino wool felt fabric is made from natural, renewable, dyed wool fiber from merino sheep, pressed together using a needle felt/steam process to produce a fabric specifically created for the handwork and fine craft marketplace. It is color fast and fade-resistant. It is very soft, cuts cleanly, does not fray and holds stitches beautifully. It has a nice ‘body’ and holds up very well with use and handling. This pure wool felt is the fabric of choice for Waldorf crafts and other fine needlework projects.
Manufactured in Europe, this fabric meets BSI Safety Standards and is safe for children's toys. Wool is naturally flame-resistant, water-repellent and insulating in both hot and cold temperatures.
This particular type of wool felt is environmentally friendly and ‘close to the sheep’. It hasn’t been overly processed. The sheep’s fiber has simply been cleaned, carded, dyed and pressed into fabric.
*THIS* is the good stuff! Pure, 100% merino wool felt specifically created for sewing and hand-crafting. Don't confuse this pure fabulous felt with a wool-blend felt. There's a whole world of difference between the two. The term 'wool felt' is often used loosely. Some 'wool felts' contain as little as 10% wool - the remaining fiber being acrylic, rayon or viscose. If you're looking for wool felt, you've come to the right place. This is pure, 100% wool felt.
When putting your time and talent into a project, I recommend using the finest materials available otherwise the effort put into the handmade item is lost. The entire experience of crafting - from the 'doing' to the 'ooooooh!-ing' - is better with quality materials.
