Helpful Note: Felt is a textile where natural (wool) or synthetic (acrylic) fibers are pressed together. Some felts are very soft, but others are strong enough to be used as construction material. I generally use 2 mm thick acrylic felt in my works. When washing, I did not experience shrinkage and elongation problems, but you may experience such issues with some soft felts.
