You may already know that we love to be as eco friendly as we can in our stores – we wrote recently about our recycled polyester thread. We would also like to share with you our eco felt, which is made from polyester produced from post-consumer plastic bottles. As you know, the success of recycling all depends on having an end product which uses up the recycled raw materials, and this is a really great example.
This is an inexpensive felt, with a good range of colours and is suitable to sew or glue. It can be used for children’s craft projects but equally is really useful for applique as it does not fray when cut.
In addition as it is an artificial fibre it will melt when heated, which is required for some craft uses. If you need a felt with some wool content you can take a look at our vintage felt range.
This felt is available to buy online by the metre at 36″/90cm width, and also at our Bridport store in 9″ squares. Please click on the link below to see the full range of colours, find out more information or request a sample.
