Felted Wool Sheets
Felted Wool Sheets
(carded, made into batts and felted 1/8" Thick 2 times through felter) $ 15.00 /lb
Using our needle felting we can make felt up to 4' wide and almost any length you desire.
We first make batts on our carder that is then run through the needle felter to tighten the felt up. The more times through the needle loom the tighter and denser the felt becomes. We have clients that want quilt batting that we run the fiber through the needle loom 1 time just to give it some structure. We have others that want felt that is very tight for bags and crafts.
This is a great alternative for the high loft quilt batt.
If you are unsure of the amount of wool needed, reference the chart listed under the wool battings tab.
*Any Felted sheets 1/4 to 1/2" thick, $20.00 per lb. This requires multiple times through the felting machine. This option is great for shoe inserts, seat cushions, knitting/crochet blocking and pressing mats for sewing. On average the finished size for these is 18"X 36" .
The felt loom does not make felt much over a 1/2" thick.
How much wool do I need for batting?
Wool generally looses 45-55% of its weight during processing. The product weights are listed in FINISHED weight so double the finished weight to get the approximate raw weight.
You can use the conversion chart below as an example

Cradle (36x45) - 1/2 lb 1 lb

**All high loft wool batts are covered in cheesecloth. This contains the fiber and helps prevent bearding. If you are looking for a low-loft batt, see our Felted Wool Sheets Tab. An additional charge is added if you want your batt made to size and enclosed in cheese cloth. Cheese Cloth is .70 a yard. Call for an estimate.

Some double-coated fleeces may need an additional pin-drafting in order to thoroughly blend the various lengths of fiber to properly spin on our machine. Where the volume of undercoat to outercoat is nearly 50-50, there is usually no problem, but in fleeces where the proportion is unbalanced, an extra pin-drafting may be needed. If it is necessary for spinning on our equipment, an extra $2.50 per finished pound of yarn will be charged for this additional pin drafting. **Breeds frequently affected include Icelandic, Shetland, Jacob, Karakul, and Navajo-Churro.
(Prices are based on the finished weight of the yarn and include all processing needed to get it to that stage)
We can process lace weight to bulky and up to 4 ply. Please specify the weight and ply when you send your fiber. If you are able to send a small sample of what you are looking for that is best.
We do not have a minimum amount; however, will charge for 1 lb on all small orders.
- $28.00 per lb.
Fiber Length: Assessing your fiber for spinning on our machines includes looking at its length. We will have the ability to spin lengths from 3.5 inches to 11 inches. Longer than that won't draft properly, and shorter than that will fall apart in the drafting zone. If in doubt, call to discuss your fiber and available options to you.
Coning and Skeining
(Yarn can be put into skeins, normally 200 yards unless you have a specified amount or cones)
- Coning- $1.50 each.
- Skeins-$2.50 per lb.
