Does anyone know where I can get 100% or close to 100% wool felt in Canada? I'm having a really hard time finding some and internet searches aren't working for me. thanks.

I'm bumping this up.  I'm also looking for industrial felt.  Everything I've found so far seems to be wholesale only.

Maybe I need to look outside of the box.  I know that industrial felt is sometimes used under carpets, and blankets of industrial felt are used for moving.

Does anyone know if you can get it at hardware stores or carpet stores?

I found a solution to my industrial felt project problem:

Moving blankets are made of industrial felt.  It is a slightly lower grade felt than the felts used in industry (which are often made with a specific purpose) but the colours and thicknesses are the same.  I found a supplier that sells by the blanket:  72" by 54" 6.77 per blanket.  You can also by a dozen at a time, and the price is lower.

I'd like to bump this thread up. I clicked on that link (yes I realize this post is from 2004!!) and the felt pads there are "permanantly out of stock"
The cheapest I have found industrial wool felt online is $75/yd. anyone found something better?

industrial would denote something high tech/synthetic no?

not wool...? which is what i'm looking for
