Anyone done any machine embroidery on wool Felt? I would think a great medium for machine embroidery.

I have. It did work well, but it didn't seem to be drastically different than acrylic felt. I'm allergic to sheep's wool, so I did the same embroidery on both types to check the difference. :)

I have, I think it looks and feels a whole lot better, than the much cheaper thinner polyester felt that is more popular. It's not very stable though, as not woven and pulls apart, so I would not use it as sample fabric or anything to see what some embroidery design might look like on some other kind of more woven fabric though, but since it does not unravel it's kind of neat for more objects and maybe as a background for a badge or an applique or something like that.

If I don't need the back of it the same for anything, I do put it on cut away, sprayed with some sticky glue and if I don't want my stitches to get lost and sink into it, I stick some kind of clear wash a way topper on top of it, and just pull it off afterwards, or maybe run a damp qtip around the edges of it.

I actually like ultrasuede better for kind of the same thing though, if going on a garment, just as it's more washable.

I think the Wool felt is a lot of fun and looks nice with thicker and more chunky threads into it. My favorites to use that way is that thicker more 12 weight wooly Lana or Burmilana 12 weight fuzzy thread from Madera.
