My New Felt Project is finished!

after a crazy amount of hours sat in front of the computer I am Amzagingly excited to finally spill the beans about my New Felt Project.....
....this, my lovely customers, is my new range of felt!  Just look at those colours!!
When I started selling felt about 6 years ago the felt I chose to sell was hard to find, it was a new product that no one had used very much and it was really good quality combined with value for money...over the years the amount of felt sellers has increased (a lot!) and so has the price of felt...a while back I did a deal with my supplier to be able to offer the same low prices by ordering in large quantities...but I needed something new.....
 And after 11 months of searching, planning, having meetings and sending a billion emails I finally found it!
This is Premium Wool Blend Felt.  It is 40% wool & 60% Viscose....Not only has it got 10% more wool than my original felt, it's also softer, stronger and MUCH better quality.  It's still a natural product and there will always be slight differences in weight per colour BUT Premium Wool Blend Felt is much more consistent, and the colours...they are amazing!...and the best bit?  The prices have stayed exactly the same!  Better Felt & Better Colours all for the exact same price....can you tell why I'm so excited!
 The manufacturer is dyeing my felt to order .... it took me FoReVeR to finalise my 45 colours....some of the original colours have been bid a fond farewell....some have been reproduced because I love them, and there are NEW colours too!
I *think* my favourite new colour is *Sea Green*....
 ...but it could also be *dark thistle*.....
 ...I am rather fickle!
 All the same felt sizes are still available....the ever popular Mini Rolls are cut and rolled....
 12" and 24" squares are available individually like before
 and there are new colour packs too...10x colours in different sizes
the rainbows are all cut and stacked ...and now come in 4 sizes: 4", 6", 9" and 12"
Yay! The Fantastic New Felt has Landed!!
oh and the original felt?  that's all been popped in the sale section with 10% off, and once it's gone it is gone for good!
In other paper-and-string news I have also added all my new Christmas Mini Kits to the website, updated the free craft kit & loyalty card offering AND added two new BIG Christmas kits too!
The Freebie Extravaganza starts's the deal:  every day I shall blog about a different new item/range in detail...if you like it and would like to win it, you leave a comment on that blog post...and on Bank Holiday Monday (27th August 2012) I will draw all the winners.

Wow, you have been busy.

Still have made room for more kit - favourite colours are cornflower, fushia, dark thistle, plum and turquoise.

Thanks for chance.

In some ways it is better to have 45 colours than 65, you still get a full range of colours, but don't have to make so much space for it all.

I like the bright colours: red, fuschia, dark thistle, teal, brilliant blue.

Decisions Decisions! I haven't worked with anything other than the felt you can get at hobby stores, so working with something different would be amazing! I'm going to have to take a look at your etsy shop, and see what I can find! Kinda hard choosing five different colors, but I'm in a "candy corn" sorta mood right now, so I would have to say I would love your natural, lemon, yellow, mustard, and orange colors. They do look yummy enough to eat!
