Just a warning about this product based on my experience. When I received the felt, it was shedding a lot of hairs. They looked sort of like cat hairs. I tried to clean it by hand-washing the felt, which helped a little bit with getting the hairs out but it also stank up my bathroom. The smell was similar to farm animals. This is also when I realized that I was allergic to the wool, so if you hare allergic to pet hair please be advised that this is not the product for you. I let the Felt Store know about these issues and they felt that their description was adequate to communicate these issues, but I do not agree, so please be cautious: • the felt will have loose fibers • the felt has a smell • if you have allergies do not buy this

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are sorry to hear about your experience! Washing wool products (like wool felt or sweaters) will cause a natural wool smell to occur. This smell can easily be dissipated by letting the felt dry thoroughly and airing it out for 24-48 hours. The felt that was purchased is a Natural Wool Felt. In the description we mention the felt contains 55% gray wool, it is not dyed, the natural fibres are visible to see the texture and depth of the material, and natural wool is used. While we sincerely apologize that this was not clear to you, we strongly encourage all of our customers to contact us should they have any questions/concerns about any of our products or allergies to any fibers. This helps to ensure that our customers receive the best product for their project.

About

The Felt Store

How We Started
----------------------
We started by only making felt, but after being asked on a countless number of occasions "What can you do with felt?" and "What else is felt used for?" we decided to start sharing that experience! That is how the idea of The Felt Store started in 2008. By making products to show all the magical things that you can make and do with felt, we have surpassed our humble beginnings and grown tremendously within the world of online business. Now The Felt Store is a leading source of felt and felt products for your home, industry, and design, and the only place for fast and convenient online purchasing and shipping of felt and felt products. We continue to flourish by developing new products and collaborating with the creative industry. Drawing on over 50 years of experience in felt making, The Felt Store is committed to bringing you the best selection of felts and felt products. Whether you are looking for technical felts to meet your industrial or commercials needs, or craft and designer felts for your next project, The Felt Store can provide you with the highest quality products at the best price. Environmentally friendly, practical and stylish, The Felt Store offers uniquely crafted and fashionable products for your home, work, or project.

Products & Services
----------------------------
Felt has a virtually endless list of uses and your imagination is the only limit as to what we can accomplish with it. Depending on your needs, our felt products are available in a wide range of thicknesses, fiber content, density, length and color. We also carry a growing line of felt footwear, felting materials, home living, apparel, accessories and designer collections. We can offer custom services such as CNC cutting, kiss cutting, die cutting, roll slitting, dying, sewing and pressure sensitive adhesive coating.

What is felt? (And why we love it!)
----------------------------------------------
Felt is a versatile textile that can be made from the matting together of natural and/or synthetic fibers. Wool is a resilient sheep fiber commonly used in high-quality felt. It mats and grips easily, and has water repelling as well as flame retardant qualities. Felt is recognized as one of the oldest fabrics known to man: some of its first findings date back to 700 B.C. where tribes in the Altai Mountains used it to make clothing, saddles and tents. Wool felt is still sought after today for its many advantages, including the ability to regulate temperatures when damp, maintain its shape under wear and tear, and provide excellent acoustics and insulation.

The Environment
------------------------
At The Felt Store, we recognize the importance of sustainable development. Many of our felts are made of biodegradable materials including virgin wool or a mix of natural fibers. The wet or needle felting processes do not require the use of chemicals nor do they create toxic waste. Perfecting the art of felt making over time, our manufacturers have developed ways to reduce waste and recycle wool in the manufacturing process. As we continue to gain knowledge and experience in all aspects of our business, we will hold to our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint.

Collaboration
-------------------
The Felt Store is always looking to expand possibilities and encourage collaboration with emerging and established designers and artists. We are passionate about educating the public on the benefits of felt and we have supported many educational institutions, such as The Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning as well as Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture and Design. To find out about sponsorship opportunities or for partnering inquires, please feel free to contact us.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do custom orders?

Yes, we certainly can do custom orders. However, these require more time and labour to fulfill. These factors are considered in your custom order quote. In order to receive a custom quote, you would need to provide us with the exact product and dimensions (height, length, width, thickness, etc.) and the estimated quantity you would like. If you require a non-standard or organic shape, we may require a drawing of your design. We can work with any vector-based file that you may have.

Before contacting us about a custom order, we would recommend that you consider whether or not this would be something that you would be able to cut or make yourself. Cutting or making the item(s) yourself would allow you to save on cost.

Can I pick up an order instead of having it shipped?

Currently, only our Mississauga location is capable of handling pick up orders. If you would like your order to be a pick up order, contact us to set up a custom listing without shipping costs.

Please note: All orders, including Pick Up orders, are subject to a 1-3 business day processing time. If the item is not in stock at our Mississauga location at the time of the order, this processing time may be longer, however we will contact you within 1 business day to inform you and provide you with the options available.

When will I receive my order?

The Felt Store will ship orders within 1-3 business days after you place your order. Your order should arrive within 10 business days of the ship date for Canadian and US shipping addresses. Shipping is not available on weekends or holidays.

Can I change or cancel an order?

If for any reason you would like to change or cancel an order, you should contact us as soon as possible. Please note that we cannot change or cancel an order once it has entered the shipping process. In this case, a return will have to be processed instead.

Are the colours of the felts on the website the same as the actual felt colours?

We encourage our customers not to rely too heavily on the screen representations of the felt colours. They are more of a guideline. While we try our hardest to make sure the pictures match the exact colour of the felt, the way your monitor or device screen is calibrated can distort the look of the colour online from the actual colour of the felt.
