Wool Felt // Swatch Cards

I'm so excited to mention the arrival of Wool Felt to my Etsy shop! This is the same Wool Felt that I use to embellish my Cloche Hats + create my Rosette Fascinator Headbands with.

Wool Felt is one of the most wonderful fabrics to craft with. The colors are vibrant and the quality is unbelievable. It is soft, yet durable, and can be used to make just about anything from heirloom dolls to hair pieces to penny rugs. Wool Felt is not at all like craft felt, which is usually acrylic or polyester, therefore it will not pill, shed, or stretch out of shape. You can also wash + dry Wool Felt if you want a bubbly + soft boiled wool look, and if you change your mind, you can just iron it out.

Wool Felt is a composition of wool and rayon, which breaks down to 20% Wool/80% Rayon or 35% Wool/65% Rayon, and is made in an eco-friendly facility in the United States. The squares, rectangles really, are 9 X 12 inches and are available in an assortment of 45 delicious colors, at $10 per dozen.

I sewed little swatches of the entire Wool Felt collection to tiny manilla tags to create a nice + neat chart. Aren't the colors yummy?

There is an exhibit in NY called Fashioning Felt that you would love. http://www.interiordesign.net/article/ca6642562.html
I wish I still lived there, we could go together.
