Felt is not used in many clothing items, but does occasionally make it’s way into items such as hats.
Caring for Felt
- Avoid placing felt items in the washer or dryer—felt is a delicate material and is can be easily damaged by the agitation of the washing machine or the tumbling and heat of a dryer.
- Clean your felt item with a soft bristle brush and a damp cloth.
- Allow it to air-dry.
Additional Tips and Advice
- Try to avoid over-handling the surface of felt items, such as hats, as felt easily absorbs body oils.
- Never leave your felt item in a hot car or around any sources of excessive heat as the item will be subject to shrinkage.
- If your felt item has attracted stubborn lint, try using a sticky lint brush, or piece of masking tape—lint should stick to the brush or masking tape without any damage to the felt.
- If your felt item gets wet, never place it in a dryer or use any other direct heat source (such as a hair dryer). Instead, place it in a cool, dry location and allow it to air dry.
