A Grade Industrial Felt is a dense, tough and strong form of wool felt. It is designed for use in applications that demand ongoing physical strength over a long time. Despite its density, this felt sheet does have the compressibility you’re used to with felts and can be rolled, formed and shaped. It can also be cut with precision as it has excellent physical integrity.
Designed initially for heavy duty industrial applications, this premium grade of engineering felt sheet has found homes in many commercial and domestic applications thanks to its reliable, long term performance. Our A Grade Felt has a minimum wool content of 70%. Its density is 0.34 g/cm³ and it is used in temperatures up to 93°C.
Thinner sizes can be cut with good quality scissors. For thicker, grades, we suggest using a stanley knife (aka, box cutter).

How do I cut this felt?
Assuming you’re looking to avoid specialised tools, a plain old Stanley knife (aka box cutter) will do the trick. Make sure the blade is sharp and, for greater thicknesses, do multiple cuts of just a couple of millimetres each time. Thinner sheets can be cut with sharp scissors.
Is it itchy?
Generally, no. Of course we can’t speak for every skin and allergy type so we can’t say this unequivocally but we can say that we’ve never experienced any itchiness when cutting this material.
Are other colours available?
Not of this particular grade.
