*Provided you have less than 5 questions about wool felt fabrics and that they are the same questions I will be answering.
I get emails nearly everyday asking some basic questions about felt fabrics. I thought I would re-post the top 5. Of course if your question isn’t here email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to help any way I can. So here we go with…
Which kind of felt fabric is best for my project? Acrylic felt, Wool Blend Felt, or 100% wool felt?
That depends on many factors however 75% of the time my answer is wool blend felt. Wool blend felt combines the beauty and durability of 100% wool felt fabric with the lower price point of an acrylic. I actually find that the wool rayon blend felts are nicer to work with in small sculpture (felt food, stuffies. plushies etc.) compared to 100% wool felt, since it moves and drapes into shape beautifully. If you follow this blog at all you probably know my feelings about Acrylic felt. In short I think it is horrible!!
For more specifics on which felt to use see the Felt Smack down where in I discuss all the ins and out and light stuff on fire too!
Still stuck? Have no fear for I have created this handy flow chart:
