Prefelt may refer to prefelt wool batts, sheets or prefelt fabric and is created to make the layout of felting projects easier and faster. Most prefelts are created by lightly needle punching wool and other fibers such as silk on a commercial machine to compact and slightly interlock the fibers.We carry 100% Merino Prefelt fabric, 80/20 Merino and Silk Prefelt and 100% Wool Prefelt of a higher micron for slightly sturdier projects such as wall hangings. Prefelts are fabulous for cutting out shapes for felt in-lays and over lays of specific design elements. Prefelts also provide a quick way to create a base layer for felting projects.
If you are unsure which prefelt would be best for your project, give us a call, we will be happy to help!
