Felt Friday – Bamboo Felt Edition

14 Feb

Bamboo felt is the softest felt available - American Felt and Craft

 Bamboo felt is made from bamboo rayon and a standard rayon blend making it the softest felt available. We just added a big selection of bamboo felt fabric available by the quarter yard to our online shop American Felt and Craft.

The fibers in bamboo felt capture color and reflect light in a way no other felt does so  grab a cup of coffee and join me on a walk through the bamboo felt forest won’t you…

The biggest difference in bamboo felt vs wool or wool blend felt is that bamboo felt  is much more plush , has a soft pearly sheen and a more delicate drape. It can be used the way you would any other felt.

Every year  American Felt and Craft selects the felt color most closely matching the Pantone color of the year.

This year was a toughie.

Orchid Inspired Felt Colors

Left to right: Forget me not, Orchid, Lavender, Sweet Pea felt sheets.

After staring at our selection of purples for a while I have come to the conclusion Radiant Orchid is a combo of all of these shades.

So we will call this a “Color of the year – Inspired Felt Friday”

Which color do you think most invokes the Color of the Year?

In Praise of Pink

9 Mar

Pink seems to be one of those colors people love or hate. I fall firmly into loving pink category so you can imagine how shocked I was to learn that it doesn’t exist. That’s right according to physics pink does not exist. …well pink light anyway. Say What?

Can’t argue with physics right…

Although I am only on step 4 of the 7 stages of grief I thought I would share some of American Felt and Craft’s “hidden gradurure” colored felt in praise of pink!
