ProFusion Needled Prefelts 

You will enjoy this product.  Here is what a user wrote:
"A bit of a confession here ... I used to feel that using prefelt was sort of cheating and that if I was really any good, I wouldn't need it. Well, obviously I was simply [not thinking] and in an effort to curb my tendency to be thick, decided to explore using it. In the past year I've purchased and used prefelt... and am now quite the fan."

Excellent quality.  Lot's of people are discovering the benefit of using prefelts.
A user says
"...I just wanted to thank you for your really superior pre-felts. I've worked with other fibers and there is no comparison for ease of use, non-fugitive dyes or quality of the fiber."

Profusion colorsOutback Fibers now imports our own line of incredible needled prefelt wool batts from Australia.  This felting fabric is the most innovative product on the market and is made from Extrafine Merino (20 microns) finely needled into pre-felt yardage.  It is so sheer, one can see through it.  The Outback ProFusion line will use some of the old favorites and several new colors we know you will love.

If you are interested in doing quality projects quickly and with incredible fineness, try some.  The multitude of ways you can use it is limited only by your creativity.

Outback ProFusion prefelts are offered in standard cuts of 80" x 9", 80" x 28-30", and 80" x 58-60". Note:  the widths can vary due to the manufacturing process.  Steam ironing the prefelt before use can help expand the width.  We are also able to provide custom lengths longer than 80".  Please call or email for a quote.

We still have a stock of Felbi Felting Fabric in scarf sizes available for purchase. The colors are shown below. 

Use a single sheet of the needled prefelt for a gossamer-weight felt, or layer it, cut it, collage it. Use it with a fabric base or use it alone. Outback ProFusion needled prefelts eliminate tedious lay-out time and produces a fine and even finished felt.  If felted in one layer it then needs to be felted well (fulled) to give it integrity. Once this is done, it creates a felted piece that is heavily fulled, yet still soft and with some drape.  Click here for felting instructions for this felting fabric.  See below for more pictures. 

The prefelt or felting fabric does need to be felted. It does not have enough integrity in its original state to use as a fabric.  This product is needled at approximately 75 grams/sq-meter (2.25 oz/sq-yd).  The color Aubergine is needled slightly thicker at approximately 100 gm/sq-meter (2.9 oz/sq-yd)

See more pictures below.

Note:  If longer lengths are desired, call or email your request.
