Product Details

Sports Felt is a type of textile fabric made from non-woven Acrylic Felt. The material is very strong and durable, which makes it a favorite for activewear applications including retro-style logos and numbers for throwback jerseys, crafting, and appliques. Very popular on sweatshirts and beanies. In its uncoated state, it is somewhat flimsy. For this reason, we offer adhesive-backed versions which include stabilizers so that it's easier to cut and handle. Our adhesive-backed versions are called Polyback, Pressure Sensitive PSA, Permanent and PSA Permanent. NOTE: Uncoated Sports Felt product must be sewn onto the garment. As the manufacturer, we offer Acrylic Felt in more colors than anyone else. Available in 26 colors -- Black, Smoke, Silver Gray, Baby Blue, French Blue, Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Dark Royal, Purple, Emerald, Evergreen, Pirate Green, Red, Cardinal Red, Burgundy, Pink, Blush, Fuchsia, Gold, Antique Gold, Camel, Brown, Orange, Eggshell, Ivory and White. Compare that to Stahls’ 10 colors.

Some customers choose the Uncoated Sports Felt because they have their own adhesive systems or sprays, or they want to keep the applique as thin as possible. Here at Twill USA, we use the Uncoated Sports Felt to create retro (throwback) letters and numbers for athletic jerseys. Other popular uses include table cloths, banners and pennants. It can also be used as an applique fabric for those who have an embroidery machine. Uncoated Sports Felt is our registered name for 100% Acrylic Felt fabric that has no adhesive backing, which is commonly referred to as Uncoated Felt or Uncoated Crafters Felt, and competes against Stahls’ Acrylic Felt in the marketplace. Sold in 1 yard increments up to 50 yards. (View Adhesive Backing Options)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Is Uncoated Sports Felt?

A: Uncoated Sports Felt is a 100% Acrylic textile material without an adhesive backing -- it's just the fabric. Because it 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. Sold in 1 yard increments up to 50 yards. Available in widths of 36″ only.

Q: Is The Uncoated Sports Felt PVC-Free?

A: Yes. The Acrylic Felt is 100% free of PVCs.

Q: Can I Layer The Uncoated Sports Felt?

A: When 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 100% 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 (throwback) jerseys. The adhesive systems used (Polyback, PSA, Permanent and PSA Permanent) are exactly the same for both products.

Q: Can I Cut Uncoated 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 Uncoated Sports Felt?

A: A 60° blade works best for cutting Uncoated 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 Uncoated Sports Felt should be sewn down onto the garment to hold the design in place permanently. If you are looking to heat press the garment after sewing, we recommend our PSA Permanent Sports Felt or Permanent Sports Felt instead of the Uncoated.

Q: How Is Uncoated 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, Uncoated 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 Uncoated 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. Uncoated Sports Felt is sewn down onto garments, so it should last as long as the garment itself.

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

A: Letterman jackets are typically decored with chenille letters, which are several times thicker than Uncoated 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 Uncoated Sports Felt To Embroider Iron-On Patches?

A: Uncoated Sports Felt can be used for that purpose, although most patches are made from 100% polyester Sports Twill.
