Boiled wool swatch - 50 x 70cm - colour purple.
Boiled wool is a great fabric for making small bags and pouches or even making cushions or lining plaids.
The best thing about boiled wool is that it doesn't fray and doesn't need a seam. Another advantage is that it doesn't pill or crease. This is a wool fabric that has been "fulled"or felted, making it compact, solid and rainproof. It has a supple and soft texture.
It should not be confused with felt: boiled wool is a noble material made of woven wool, whereas felt is made from synthetic fabrics.
We recommend using boiled wool for your tapestry or petit point cushions - the thickness is ideal for assembling with canvas.
