Anyone have any ideas as to where to buy industrial, or 3mm wool felt? I've been searching online like crazy for this stuff and am only coming up with $75/yd. as the best price. I started using the eco-spun felt (made from recycled water bottles) for my bags, but it's just too think. I need the really heavy stuff. plz halp?

I don't know about industrial felt, but I use the 20% or 35% wool blend felt that I get from Joann's or my LQS also carries it. Prices range from $7-10/yd. The 100% wool stuff at J's is about $18/yd, only about 35" wide though.  I soak mine in very hot water, rinse in cool water and dry on low heat to shrink and get that bumpy rumply look and it is pretty thick. My LQS has lots of bag patterns made with these felts, I love them! I tried the eco-spun just don't get the same effect with it, the price is nice but I agree it is too thin.
