Does anyone know where to buy wool felt in the quality that PTI has so that I can use it in die cuts to put on my Christmas cards? I love their felt but can't bring myself to shop there after some very bad experiences.
I found a wonderful seller that I am going to order from it looks like it has the denseness that I am looking for. Bear Dancing Crafts in Canada. I am not endorsing this shop since I haven't bought anything there yet.
I ordered some wool felt and wool roving from Bear Dance Crafts last year, and had a great experience with them. The owner even phoned me to let me know that one of the items I had ordered would be backordered for a couple of weeks just in case I wanted to change my mind or have the other items shipped first. She was really friendly and helpful! The wool is great quality, although I would say the felt is thinner than the PTI felt, more like the thickness of felt from My Favorite Things (I have some of their older stuff.) But still good!
I the felt that My Favorite Things sells is die cut friendly (but I'm not sure it's wool felt). They have some awesome colours and great customer service (and all kinds of buttons, inks etc. to match)!
I find a wool blend felt works much better than 100% wool. I saw Julie Ebersole do a tutorial on that awhile ago and you get a much crisper cut without the little "hairs" along the cut. I buy all my felt from an Etsy Store, BenzieDesign.
