What is prefelt? It is not the same as roving or top. Wool prefelt is a lightly needled or loosely felted batt making a felt-like fabric. Residing midway between being dyed carded wool and becoming sturdy wool felt fabric, prefelt requires additional felting to become a durable fabric.
Our exclusive, thin and extra-fine prefelt batts promise to save you time when incorporated into your wet, nuno and dry needle felting projects.
- Tear apart for soft edges or cut for defined edges
- Felt it onto the surface of fabric or fiber
- Make clothes for felted dolls
- Use as a base or layer and felt other fibers onto it
- Use it with roving to create multi-colored felt sheets
- Needle it onto any of our wool felt
Shrinkage can be significant. The width and length can be increased with a little steam ironing, but not too much or you will felt your prefelt.

I received some of this as a gift and absolutely LOVE it! It is so easy to work with, is so soft, and the colors are beautiful. Much easier to store too as it comes in these lovely flat sheets!
I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed as of yet! Surely someone else has loved it also?! I needle felt pictures/paintings and am thrilled with this. I did the 20x72 in natural white and love it. I will be coming back for more, many times in the future.
