About Our Wool Felt:
How does wool felt differ from other felts? Wool felt is made from blending wool and rayon (a resin fiber made from tree pulp). These wool felts feel soft to the touch. If you wash the wool felt and toss it in the dryer, expect the felt to shrink between 5% and 10% which creates a bubbly surface to the felt. Wool felt should not be confused with craft felt for craft projects which is made from nylon. There is also 100% wool felt which is about twice the thickness of wool blended felt. Wool felt is not the same thing as felted wool. Felted wool is made from 100% woven wool. "Felting" is done to shrink the wool and tighten the fibers which makes it easy to use for applique and other items.
