Pressed Felt

- Aug 27, 2018-

  • Oldest form of fabric known to man, predates weaving and knitting.

  • Wool fibers or a blend of wool and other fibers are pressed together with steam and pressure to allow the fibers to naturally interlock.

  • This felting process produces a fabric that is slightly less durable than the woven felt but is less expensive and can be made thicker.

  • Parts will not fray and loose fibers are minimal.

  • Can achieve very high densities

  • Maximum thickness 2".

  • Typical uses include:

    • Filters

    • Wicks

    • Gaskets

    • Wipers
