    Even though the methods to produce wool felt have been refined over the centuries, the manufacturing principle and the basic raw material have remained unchanged. Sheep’s wool is cleaned, carded, and the fibers aligned into batts. It is then compacted and joined by moisture, heat, and agitation until a homogeneous fabric is formed – wool felt. The material is naturally moisture resistant, self-extinguishing, non-directional, available in lightfast colors, and provides thermal and acoustic insulation.

    Wool felt is a natural product. And a high standard of dye processes in Germany and contents of 100% wool make this product earth friendly. Recyclable too! Since wool felt is made of sheep’s wool and viscous staple fibers, this means that after the felt product has been used or become worn out, it can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

    FilzFelt, which is a combination of the German word for felt (filz) and the English (felt), was founded in 2008 by two felt-loving designers, KELLY SMITH and TRACI ROLOFF.

    Born and raised in Northern Virginia and trained in architecture, Kelly now calls Boston home. For several years, she worked with German wool felt in a line of goods for her company etcetera media. Kelly also enjoys managing (and playing with) a local women's soccer team and planning monthly events with like-minded designers in the Boston Design Salon.

    Traci grew up in Wisconsin and worked in corporate interior design and historic preservation before realizing there’s a whole big world outside of architecture. Now a Boston resident, she started and contributed to the design blog, the girl in the green dress, until ending it earlier this year and is partial to old bicycles and Finnish printed textiles.

    And although they love all the felt colors in the line (and based their logo on color 308 Petrol!), Kelly's favorite felt color is 300 Anthrazit and Traci's favorite is 173 Mango.
