- Living Felt uses humane, cruelty-free wool. It is harder to get and it is more expensive but it is worth it in every way!
- Even our locks come from small family owned farms who love, love, love their sheep and goats!
- Our #1 MC-1 Living Felt Brand Felting Wool, and CW-1 Core wool comes only from U.S. Farms. It is processed and carded using a 'green' earth friendly soap that is non-toxic and pleasant to the nose! We do not 'carbonize' our wool to burn out vegetable matter, so little bits of hay may be present. This eco-friendly process costs us more, but we believe the added cost is worth it to everyone here, to our customers and their family, and to the planet!
- Living Felt sells the only 'Green Soy' Felting foam and Professional Felting Mats. Our own design!
- Our own Living Felt Earth Harmony 'Eco Friendlier Foam' has a drastically lower carbon imprint on the planet than standard foam and is environmentally stable. The benefit to maintain this standard far outweighs the alternative and is worth it to us and our customers! It does not contain any fire retardant agents.
- Living Felt supports the arts and the felting community! We give away Gift Certificates 2-5 times each month.
- Living Felt supports new artists. We work to help other artists and kit makers become established by introducing them to our customer base and by providing valuable feedback. Our greatest joy is to witness the success of another and to see the creative efforts come to fruition for our customers.
- Living Felt support teachers and schools! We are all teachers and artists here at Living Felt and we understand what the realities are! We offer class discounts, teacher discounts, 4-H discounts, church discounts and free instructions where and when we can to help support the development of students creativity of all ages.
