Needlepunch Felt for Padding

Needlepunch Felt Manufacturer with Large Inventory to Serve Various Industries Worldwide

As a leading needlepunch felt manufacturer, we stock a huge inventory of needled wool felts, including multiple SAE grade products (US Federal Specification C-F-206G). Needled felt involves an intricate weave within the woven product. The weave greatly increases the tensile strength and reduces the chance of splitting.

Needled felt is often recommended for nonmechanical applications. It is often used for packaging, crating, and lining applications, where a lower grade felt is acceptable.

Needlepunch felt consists of carded wool and varying percentages of synthetic fiber, which is then blended and mechanically combined in an engineered needle punch process.

Needlepunch felt is a cost-saving nonwoven felt alternative to pressed wool felt.


SAE StandardDensity (Lbs/Sq Yd @ 1″)Wool %Thickness Range
   F-15N8.48  55%    1/8″ – 1″
   F-26N7.19  50%    1/8″ – 1″
   F5512  75%    1/16″ – 3/32″
