Felt is a type of textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together forming a very compact fabric in various weights and thicknesses. What makes this material so favorable is the fact that felt fabrics don't fray; therefore the need for a hemming or finishing is rendered obsolete. There are many industrial uses for felts such as piano hammers and in the printing industry. Made from a wool blend and on the thinner side, this fabulous felt would serve best made into pennants, slippers, insoles, hats and felt skirts.

Learn about fabric careHOW TO CARE FOR WOOL FABRICS: Dry-cleaning is recommended, though some wools can take hand washing. Always test a swatch first if you are going to care for your wool fabrics at home rather than using a drycleaner. Many of the fine wools Mood sells online and in-store have already been "sponged," or preshrunk, but you can preshrink your wool if necessary. Mood recommends taking your uncut wool fabric to the drycleaners and asking them to steam it for you, which will safely preshrink it more effectively than you can using home methods. Mood strongly recommends test-laundering a swatch, if you plan to wash your garment or home furnishings yourself.
