New National Nonwovens WoolFelt Colors—and a giveaway!

First, a little history:

Based in Easthampton, Massachusetts, National Nonwovens manufactures needlepunched nonwovens. Their product is used for so many more markets than the craft market (that WE love). Originally under the name National Felt, the company produced felted wool beginning in 1905 for apparel and wartime products. Later, the company’s WoolFelt fabric was even implemented in the popular poodle skirts of the 1950’s!

Second, brand new products:

National Nonwovens has nine new felt colors making their debut at the International Spring Quilt Market this weekend (May 18-20) in Kansas City, Missouri.

The new WoolFelt Daydream Inspirations Collection—sporting fabulous color names—feature four new heathered hues (Style TOY002 – 35% wool/65% rayon) of Ruby Red Slippers, Tropical Wave, Havana Gold, Enchanted Forest, and three additional WoolFelts of (Style WCF001 – 20% wool/80% rayon) Kiss Me Darling, Fresh Linen, and Spring Tickle.

And last, but not least:

A giveaway!
