There are two types of high-grade natural wool felt. Industrial / SAE felt and 100% wool felt that is usually sold for doll making / craft applications come in a multitude of colours.
With all natural fabrics, the top surface of the surrounding laser cut edge mark slightly, usually with very light brown / orange singed appearance. We cut felt on the engraving table or clean honeycomb bed which can also mark the underside of the material.
The laser seals the edge to prevent fraying with a brown / orange appearance.
Synthetic felts are usually acrylic based. These laser cut with a glossy edge and with a more melted appearance and lighter tones.
As a benchmark, we recommend that minimum cut widths be no thinner than 2mm.
Most natural felts tend to engrave with a brown / orange tinge. The lighter the felt tone the stronger the engraving contrast.
You need to make sure you supply your felt as flat as possible. Try and make sure it is not crumpled, this can have issues when cutting.
