Wool Felt Fabric

Preshrinking felt?

I need to make a skirt out of felt and I need to know if I need to preshrink this fabric and how. I don’t know yet if I’ll get wool felt or polyester felt so I’m interested in how to make it in both cases. Also, how should I dry it, afterwards?

Please answer only if you’ve been working with this type of fabric or you know someone who had and you remember the details. Thank you! :-)
So I get it is a dry clean only fabric, right? Have anyone any idea on exactly how much it shrinks on a dry clean preshrink? (as a ratio, for instance)

A couple of things that will help – make sure you are getting a good weight of felt – the thinner stuff is really for crafting. The sewing felt used for garments has a heavier hand.

To pre- shrink the fabric take it to the dry cleaners and have them dry clean it before you cut out your pattern. this makes a huge difference!

I have used this method and had the people I sewed for tell me it was the first time they a garment that didn’t ruck up and pucker when they took it in to be cleaned.

the garment will last longer and look much nicer. All the work you put in it will look nicer as well. (no puckered seams or weird wonky places that bulge.

Please don’t try to preshrink the felt in the washing machine. – the felt will be the felt equivalent of off grain (even though felt dosen’t have a grain, I’m not sure how to best explain it – the felt looks like there is stuff under it when you try to lay it flat and it just WON”T lay flat quite right)

If this is a garment you want to use often it very much worth having the fabric pre dry cleaned.

Drycleaning can shrink wool felt enough that you may need to buy a bit extra (half yard or so) to have enough for the pattern.

Polyester felt with get thin in some places when you wash it in the washing machine as well. Even though it probably won’t shrink as much it will fuzz up more over time and you will get little pills and fuzzy patches all over the skirt from just wearing it.
