Great for the price
on 17 April 2013
I bought this based on the mixed reviews of other customers, and also because I was looking for something cheap and cheerful to practice my felt projects with. They are all A4 size and undamaged, and arrived in 4 packets of 10 sheets each. These packets were packaged in 2 envelopes, kept together with an elastic band.
I received: 4 x Deep Red, 4 x Burnt Orange, 4 x Brown, 4 x White, 4 x Green (I call it Santa Green!) 4 x Yellow, 4 x Dark Grey, 4 x Black, 4 x Royal Blue, and 4 x Light Orange.
I found the White to be the thickest sheets of them all, but despite the rest of the sheets being thinner, they seem perfectly fine for use. None are wispy or easy to tear apart, and yes, if you hold them up to the light, you can see little flecks of light showing through - but that is due to the construction of it. It does feel a little less flexible than expensive felt, and not soft enough for snuggly soft toy construction. However, there are many uses for this felt, and I thought the complaint about it not being "wool felt" was unwarranted. Its a tenner for 40 sheets of colourful A4 sheets of acrylic type felt. Great bargain! I also noticed from the packaging, that it says " The Children Produced Color Velvet Paper", with it repeated in Chinese. So I wonder if it is some Chinese Art Project for children?
Anyway, its a good bargain, and I would buy it again.
