Pinch Stitch Pinched details are machine stitched at predetermined intervals in matching thread color unless otherwise specified
Maintenance Vacuum occasionally to remove general air-borne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt. Refer to 100% Wool Design Felt Maintenance + Cleaning for detailed care instructions.
Lead Time Made to order and certain lead times will apply
Environmental 100% Wool Design Felt is 100% biodegradable and Akustika 10 Substrate is 100% recyclable
100% Wool Design Felt contains no formaldehyde, 100% VOC free, no chemical irritants, and free of harmful substances
Installation Installs with Interlock Mounting System provided (wall fasteners not included)
Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
