I am looking for a good source for wool to use for needle felting. I have tried the wool at JoAnn's and it draws up too much. I have been going to thrift stores and reclaiming the fabric from jackets and then dyeing it for what I need.

If you know of a good affordable source of 100% wool fabric, please let me know.

Thanks,
Rebecca

I'm not sure what sorts of wool are suitable for needle felting, but I know Fabric Mart (http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com) carries a good selection of woolens (flannel, Shetland, etc) which they describe as good for rug hooking. I also like the wools at Renaissance Fabrics (www.renaissancefabrics.net) and Hamilton Dry Goods (www.periodfabric.com)
