UK and Australian sources for wool felt

You guys know I have trusted felt vendors I work with here in the US, but because international shipping can get a little pricey I do get a lot of questions about where to source wool felt overseas. I asked my UK and AUS customers on FB where they purchase their felt and received so many helpful responses! Thank you! I thought I'd compile a handy list of some vendors* here for you. Might give you a good lead if you are looking for a domestic source!

*These have been recommended to me by other crafters and some vendors have kindly sent me samples/color cards (shown in the photos), but I have not personally sewn with their felt nor purchased items from them. This list is intended as a reference for your convenience only. Please use the same diligence and discretion you would use with any internet or in-store purchase.

  1. Hands down My Felt Lady is the best place to obtain 100% merino wool felt. The quality of the product is second to none! She has an AMAZING range of colours, as well as seriously stunning glitter felts and metallic felts - I have shopped with My Felt Lady for years. She also happens to be super helpful and really fast with delivery as well!

  3. I'm in Germany and had a hard time finding a vendor in my own town, so I was pleased to find this one online. http://www.kleinetroll.de/DE-WEBsite/Home-de.htm Maybe it will help someone else too!
