Whether they are pressed wool or needle felts there are many options within each which determines their final use.

Pressed Wool Felts
Our pressed felts are made to the highest standard. Pressed wool felt is made by utilising the natural properties of wool to lock together when processed with water, steam, mechanical abrasion and drying. We have stock available in a range of densities from 0.11gm/cm to 0.75gm/cm and a variety of thicknesses from 1mm, in white, grey and black. Available in cut parts to individual customer requirements or sheets and rolls

We are able to offer additional treatments to the majority of our wool felts (subject to minimum quantities), these include:

• Proofing against rot, mildew & moth
• Water repellent and flame retardant
• Adhesive backing with release paper
• Latex Backing
• Lamination

Our felts are manufactured to European standards which can be cross-referenced to British & American equivalent specifications
