Amazingly soft merino wool prefelt in exquisite colors. Our exclusive, thin and extra-fine prefelt sheets promise to save you time when incorporated into your wet, nuno and dry needle felting projects. Tear apart for soft edges or cut for defined edges, then apply to the surface of fabric or fiber and begin felting or use the prefelt uncut as a base and layer and felt other fibers onto it. In nuno, the wool fibers penetrate your cotton gauze or silk chiffon becoming one with the fabric. Other ideas...
What is prefelt? It is not the same as roving or top. Wool prefelt is a lightly needled or loosely felted sheet of felt-like fabric. Living midway between being dyed carded wool and becoming sturdy wool felt fabric, prefelt requires additional felting to become a durable fabric.
Shrinkage can be significant. The width and length can be increased with a little steam ironing, but not too much or you will felt your prefelt.
Sizes are approximate: 12 x 20", 20 x 24", 20 x 68-72"(will vary)
Origin: Australian merino wool needled and dyed in Europe. Oeko-Tex certified free of harmful substances.

I received some of this as a gift and absolutely LOVE it! It is so easy to work with, is so soft, and the colors are beautiful. Much easier to store too as it comes in these lovely flat sheets!

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed as of yet! Surely someone else has loved it also?! I needle felt pictures/paintings and am thrilled with this. I did the 20x72 in natural white and love it. I will be coming back for more, many times in the future.
