I've had several crafters ask where to get wool felt, so thought I'd share this resource with you. It is tough to find wool felt in my town, even at the huge craft super stores they only have the occasional bolt in one or two colors. I'm running out of the mother lode of wool felt scraps I found at the thrift store a while back, so I found WoolFeltCentral.com (aka, Prairie Point Junction) online and gave them a try.
This felt I bought (pictured above) is sold by the 12x18 inch sheet, and is not 100% wool, but a wool/rayon blend which I thought I'd give a try. I love it so far. The colors are beautiful, and it seems to have a nice texture and weight. It is also not as pricey as 100% wool.
I also bought some recently from JCarolineCreative, and really liked it. She has a nice selection of 100% wool and also wool blends, which she sells by the yard and also by the fat quarter.
If you'd like to read more, I also found this helpful post on Old School Acres comparing wool, wool blend, and acrylic felts, with more links to sources.
