Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the care and cleaning of Benzie's felt?
To keep our Wool Blend and Bellwether felt in its original condition we suggest dry cleaning or gentle spot cleaning. But our wool blend felt can be washed too -it just needs to be washed before you craft with it. We wrote a whole blog post about it too!
How do I get wrinkles and creases out of felt?
Like all fabric -your lovely felt can get wrinkled too. Good thing Benzie's felt is made of wool and can be easily steamed and ironed on high heat -the wrinkles will melt away!
