Having purchased my lovely wool rich felt from Colourful Felt for years, I have found the colours vibrant, the staff friendly and the service is fantastic. They have a great stock range and very speedy delivery. I wouldn’t purchase anywhere else!

Claire - a very grateful and satisfied customer

The felt that we have bought has always been of the highest quality and colours are bright and constant. We never have to worry that the shades vary, also they introduce new shades with the most wonderful names. Our orders are filled quickly and faultlessly and we hope to deal with this company for many years to come.

Caroline, who runs a fabric business in Macclesfield
