  • Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers. The fibers form the structure of the fabric. While some types of felt are very soft, some are tough enough to form construction materials. Felt can be of any color, and made into any shape or size.
  • Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to humankind. It predates weaving and knitting, although there is archaeological evidence from the British Museum that the first known thread was made by winding vegetable fibers on the thigh.
  • Felt is generally composed of wool that is mixed with a synthetic in order to create sturdy, resilient felt for craft or industrial use. However, some felt is made wholly from synthetic fibers.
  • Felt is made by compressing fibers to make a non-woven fabric The non-woven fabric is carbonized to make an activated carbon. Process similar to that used for making charcoals from coconut, wood, etc..
  • Felt is made by a process called wet felting, where the natural wool fiber is stimulated by friction and lubricated by moisture (usually soapy water), and the fibers move at a 90 degree angle towards the friction source and then away again, in effect making little "tacking" stitches. Only 5% of the fibers are active at any one moment, but the process is continual, and so different 'sets' of fibers become activated and then deactivated in the continual process.
  • Felt is used in a wide variety of applications both within the residential and industrial contexts. Felt is used in air fresheners, children's bulletin boards, craft kits, holiday costumes and decorations, stamp pads, within appliances, gaskets, as a clothing stiffener or liner, and it can be used as a cushion, to provide pads for polishing apparatus, or as a sealant in industrial machinery.
  • Polyethylene and resinated asbestos feltt which have certain advantages over celluloid and moulded leather, should be regarded not as substitutes but as useful additions to a range of synthetic materials which permit the degrees of rigidity and flexibility required for various appliances.
  • Carbon fiber felts are an ideal system for studying chemical vapor infiltration with carbon. Carbon fiber felts applying a combination of different scanning force techniques including lateral force microscopy (LFM), force modulation microscopy (FMM) and adhesion force imaging in the pulsed force mode (PFM).
  • Needle felting, punching, embellishing, all refer to the technique of “punching or felting” one fiber into another. Interweave Felt explores the three major techniques of feltmaking: felted knitting (known as shrinking your knitting), traditional wet felting, and needle felting. Interweave Felt also includes a few tried-and-true projects.
  • Some nonwoven materials such as felt have been in use for thousands of years but the blossoming of nonwovens into more widespread use has occurred mostly within the past few decades. Felts are used to press and dewater the paper web formed by wires.
  • The production of man-made fibre during 2004-05 amounted to 774.65 million kg. as compared to 732.32 million kg. the during 2003-04 constituting an increase of 5.7%.
  • US demand for nonwoven roll goods is projected to increase 3.9 percent per year to $5.6 billion in 2011, driven by healthy gains in key markets such as filtration, construction, wipes and adult incontinence.
  • A US Company is rapidly taking over the felt market—and it’s selling to more and more large companies who have adopted Six Sigma quality programs and employ quality experts known as "Black Belts."
