Default Do you have to use wool felt?

I was all excited about trying some flet hair clips, but most I found on Etsy were made with wool felt and they made a big deal out of it being better than craft store felt? Is it really that much better? Isn't it expensive? What do you use?

I've only made a few felt clips w/ rhinestones. . .I used craft felt from Joanns. . .I heard wool was better. . .but I'd like to hear others opinions about this as well. Where do you purchase this? The fabric section?

I will say yes. There is a BIG difference between store felt and true 100% wool felt. Its SO much easier to cut and is much stiffer. The store felt is rather scratchy and doesn't hold its shape much. I've gotten a lot from ericas.com

There is a difference between the two. The more wool in the felt the better it cuts, holds shape, and overall looks. I also get mine from Erica's.

I only use 100% wool felt. I've tried the blended, crafts (HL) and poly but since stopped using it.

ETA: oopsy,.. YES, there's a big difference between those 2. And, it IS a big deal...lol..(at least to me)

I had no idea 100% wool felt was so pricey
