Great set of swatch cards! They will make it much easier to plan projects as you will know for sure what the colors are rather than depending on a computer monitor. I love them!

This is my favorite felt. It is very soft and beautiful. The little heart samples that came with my order are the most beautiful shades of pink. This merino wool is luscious in every way.

Frequently asked questions
What sizes of wool felt sheets do you offer?
These are the size options I typically offer:
8 x 12" - $3.50
18" square - $11.00
36 x 36" - $42.00
Some of these sizes aren't listed in my shop. Please feel free to send an Etsy message and let me know sizes, colors, quantities needed and I'll gladly set up a custom listing.
How do I choose the colors I wish to purchase?
When purchasing a listing that allows you to choose whatever colors you'd like to have, type the color names into the dropdown 'Options' box.
Is Felt On The Fly wool felt washable?
Yes it is. This quality wool felt can be washed.
Hand-washing results in the least amount of shrinkage (5-10%). To hand wash, place in a sink of cool water. Use a small amount of liquid dish soap. Soak for a few minutes, drain sink, rinse with cool water, roll in a towel to remove excess water and air dry.
Hot water and laundry soap in the washing machine followed by a hot dryer will cause 20-30% shrinkage. Also, the texture will change. The felt becomes thicker and bumpier; not 'pilly', but with more texture. It will no longer be the smooth felt that you started with. It can be ironed out a bit, but will remain thicker.
Please contact me for additional washing details and results for specific applications.
Is all 100% wool felt the same?
Oh heck no!!!
It's a fact that sheep produce wool. But there are hundreds of different breeds of sheep. Each breed produces a different type of wool fiber. Some sheep's fiber is soft and silky (like Merino), some is stiff and coarse (like sheep from Nepal). Some is curly or thick or short or long. Also, processing methods and types of dye can make a very big difference in the finished product.
No, all 100% wool felt is not created equal.
