Product Details

Acrylic Felt is an ideal fabric for creating retro-style logos and numbers for throwback jerseys. But without a coating of Heat Press Adhesive, it can be difficult and flimsy to use. Polyback Sports Felt features anti-fray thermal adhesive backing (P600 1.5-Mil 49″ Polyback) that seals the material and provides stability for cutting + sewing onto garments. Its polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut easily on dies, lasers or even hand-cut. NOTE: Can be heat pressed to hold the design in place. Must be sewn. (View Adhesive Backing Options)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Is Polyback Sports Felt?

A: Polyback Sports Felt is a non-woven Acrylic Felt that utilizes an adhesive coating (P600 1.5-Mil 49″ Polyback) so that it can be cut easier, layered, re/positioned, heat pressed and sewn. Because Polyback Sports Felt is a non-woven material there is minimal fraying (if any), making it much easier to achieve a clean cut. Clean cuts are are critical for embroidery machines that demand a precise edge to put a zigzag or satin stitch on the design.

Q: Is The Polyback Sports Felt PVC-Free?

A: Yes. The Acrylic Felt and our proprietary Polyback adhesive is 100% free of PVCs.

Q: Can I Layer The Polyback Sports Felt?

A: If sewn, it can be layered 2 or 3 layers thick on itself or Sports Twill or other applique material for multicolor designs. If used with Metallic Twill, we DO NOT recommend the Metallic Twill as the bottommost layer (background).

Q: How Is Sports Felt Different From Tackle Twill?

A: Sports Twill is a dense, woven material made from polyester, whereas Sports Felt is a non-woven material made from Acrylic. Felt has a textured, fuzzy look that’s popular on sweatshirts, hoodies, beanies and retro jerseys.

Q: Does Polyback Sports Felt Have An Adhesive Backing?

A: Yes. The thermal adhesive backing provides stability for cutting and sewing onto garments. Its polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut on craft cutters, dies, lasers, Ioline flatbed cutters or even hand-cut. This adhesive system — (P600 1.5-Mil 49″ Polyback) — is available separately for coating materials other than Polyback Sports Felt. NOTE: May be too thick for some plotter cutters.

Q: Will The P600 1.5-Mil Polyback Adhesive Gum Up My Sewing Needles?

A: Our proprietary hot-melt adhesives feature a needle glide additive designed to sew without gumming. Sharp needles work better than ballpoint needles. HINT: Coating the needle with silicone also helps to promote a clean stitch. All manners of stitching work well, including zig zag, satin, bean, and lockstitch.

Q: Can I Cut Polyback Sports Felt On A Tabletop Plotter?

A: Tabletop plotters aren’t 36″ wide, so the material will need to be cut down first. However, once properly sized, the fabric cuts clean on many desktop cutters including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. NOTE: May be too thick for some plotter cutters.

Q: What Blade Should I Use To Cut Polyback Sports Felt?

A: A 60° blade works best for cutting Polyback Sports Felt. On some machines it’s called the “thick” blade. Machines vary, but 150 grams of downforce is usually sufficient to get a clean cut.

Q: Do I Have To Sew The Design After Cutting It?

A: Yes. After cutting, the Polyback Sports Felt can be heat-pressed onto the garment to hold the design in place while sewing. If you are looking to heat press the garment after sewing, we recommend our PSA Permanent or Permanent Sports Felt instead of the Polyback.

Q: How Is Polyback Sports Felt Different Than Scrim Felt?

A: Scrim Felt is a coarse, less dense — albeit heavier and stiffer than Acrylic or Wool — fabric typically used as a lining or background material. In the apparel world, Polyback Sports Felt is used as an applique material. It is a more densely constructed fabric used for finishing garments.

Q: How Is Acrylic Felt Different From Wool Felt?

A: The yarns are different. The Acrylic Felt is a manmade synthetic resin. As such, it washes better and needs no special care like Wool Felt.

Q: How Long Does Polyback Sports Felt Last On The Garment?

A: Acrylic Felt is washable. We have tested this material up to 50 wash and dry cycles in a home laundry environment without fraying, cracking or peeling. Polyback Sports Felt is sewn down onto garments, so it should last as long as the garment itself.

Q: Can Polyback Sports Felt Be Used To Decorate Letterman Jackets?

A: Letterman jackets are typically decored with chenille letters, which are several times thicker than Polyback Sports Felt letters. Felt can be used on jackets, but it won’t be as thick, which can be an advantage in terms of flexibility. Custom Felt designs are also less expensive, with more color options, and delivered faster than chenille.

Q: Can I Use Polyback Sports Felt To Embroider Iron-On Patches?

A: Polyback Sports Felt can be used for that purpose, although most patches are made from polyester Sports Twill.
