Felt: Craft felt, Eco-friendly felt, wool blend felt, wool felt.
We all know what felt is: a soft, sturdy fabric of various thicknesses. The structure of all types of felt is similar: soft fibers, either synthetic or natural pressed (mated) to form a smooth, soft, pliable type of fabric. All types of felt, mentioned above, differ from each other in their fiber content. Craft felt is synthetic. Eco-friendly felt is either rayon or also synthetic (but made from recycled materials). Wool blend (obviously) is a blend of wool and synthetic fibers, while wool felt is 100% wool. Further, we’ll speak about the details of choosing felt for various embroidery projects.
What an embroiderer should take into account when working with felt:
- Fiber content. Anything that is synthetic is obviously not good for making garments and personal accessories. So, craft felt is a nice choice for making in-the-hoop tags and ornaments, patches, etc., but not, say decorative pillow for nursery. Also, felts tend to shrink, some of its types shrink more than others. Wool felts shrink more, thus when machine embroidering wool-blend felts, make sure you pre-shrink the fabric.
Note: Some felts can’t be machine-washed. Thus, if in doubt, pre-shrink the one that you’re working with, by gently hand-washing it.
- The dimension of the fabric (its thickness). There are several categories of felt thickness. Thin felt (1.2 – 2 mm) is perfect for appliqués and in-the-hoop projects. Felt of medium thickness (2 – 3 mm) is good for interior accessories, bags, etc. Such felts can withstand quite dense stitching so it’s really great for making all those Christmas stockings and trees skirts decorations. Felt that is thicker than 5 mm is seldom used for machine embroidery. Such thickness is really hard for any home embroidery machine to put its needle through. Thus, only choose to use such felt for your projects is you have an industrial embroidery machine (or a cross-over).
