Amazingly soft merino wool prefelt in exquisite colors. Our extra-fine prefelt sheets (also known as prefelt batts) 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? Wool prefelt is lightly needled or partially felted wool. 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.
