For a long, long time, acrylic felt was just what was available to crafters, and in many applications, it’s still a good choice. But now that wool felt is more readily available again, and in so many beautiful colors, it’s everywhere in the craft world.

Sturdier and more versatile, wool felt can be used in applications where more wear will take place or a firmer material is required. It can also be felted further, similar to knitted wool, to create a thick material with a more organic look. It’s also softer to the touch and nicer to work with.

Ornaments! Even though the Christmas has come and gone, felt ornaments can be made for all seasons (they are especially cozy for the Christmas tree though!)

As handy as it is simple, these baskets beg to be made in bulk. Craft storage anyone?

Feeling inspired? Check out our Craft Trends Board for more ideas and then tell us what YOU would do with a few squares of wool felt.

    Fun ideas! I think you could use fleece for them, too.
