What kind of felt is best for embroidery?
Stabilizers for Felt
For best results we do recommend using a middle-weight tear-away stabilizer for a regular embroidery design as felt is strong enough to withstand the tearing motions. For larger designs with a lot of stitches or lighter weight felt, a middle-weight cut-away will work well.

How do you protect felt?
Spraying your fabric with a sealant such as Scotchguard will keep the felt from absorbing any liquid and make water bead up on top of its surface, preventing damage to your felt. It also helps prevent moisture-related mold growth if you are storing fabrics for long periods between use.
