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.  100% wool felt (which can be used but is more expensive) or felted wool which is used for felt hats and other things.
