You can make your own sherpa-like or fleece-like felt in a wonderful natural
fiber-blend! With this easy and fun technique, you can create the perfect texture
and give ordinary crafts and collectibles a unique and luxurious look!
- Using cold to warm water, wet National Nonwovens' WoolFelt® completely in a sink or basin. Do not rub or agitate. Wet each color separately (some dye may be released into the water - this is normal).
- Squeeze by hand to remove as much water as possible. Avoid wringing as it may stretch the material.
- Place in a standard tumble clothes dryer on regular or hot setting until WoolFelt® is nearly dry (approximately 35 minutes). Do not over dry. Dry light colors separately from darker colors. Colors may change slightly during drying process ( I usually put a small old towel in too) Tip: if excess dye remains in dryer, take out WoolFelt®, place old wet towel in dryer, and finish dryer cycle to remove remaining dye.
- Lay flat to dry completely, smoothing fabric gently by hand. Large wrinkles may be removed by using a light steam iron held just above the surface of the fabric. Return felt to its original form by pressing with a steam iron.
To avoid future shrinkage upon completion, dry cleaning is recommended. WoolFelt® should be washed only once to create the fleece-like effect.
Price is for a cut of 45x50cm.
