Felt – Felt is a dense fabric made from tightly matted fibres, usually wool but sometimes blended with other animal fibres or manufactured fibres. Felt is neither knitted nor woven so it doesn’t have a straight of grain. Felt is made by subjecting the fibres to heat, moisture and pressure so that the fibres become tangled together. The end result is a fabric that doesn’t fray or stretch. It is commonly used for hats, coats and slippers.
