Where to find felt in Singapore

Find Felt Singapore

Most of the felt that you will be able to find in craft shops in Singapore are Craft Felt or Acrylic Felt.

Craft and Acrylic felt are of acrylic, polyester, rayon blend of material. It is cheaper, stain resistant and washable, however, it will start to fuzz over time, which is not suitable for making of felt toys of softies, or craft projects that you intent to keep. It tends to be thinner and the fibers are much weaker, so seams are likely tear. Thus, Acrylic Felt is best used for children’s craft, hair ties or clips, hanging mobiles, ornaments, brooches, small felt mascots.

I much prefer to use Blended Wool Felt for all my felt projects. Blended Wool Felt may be more expensive than Acrylic Felt, but it is recommended if you plan to work on crafting projects that need a variety of shades (especially needed in fashion accessories or home decor) or you intend to keep the felt craft for some time. As it is made with real wool, the feel is soft and luxurious. It is also durable, has a slight elasticity so the seams will not rip if you stuff felt toys. It is hypo-allergenic and has antibacterial properties that prevent it from mildewing. It is best used for home-decor crafting such like pillows, heirloom ornaments that you plan to keep, felt toys and softies.

Spotlight used to stock the wool-blend versions (35% wool, 65% rayon), but not anymore, so Wool Blend Felt can only be found online. See the bottom of this post on the links to buy Blended Wool Felt.

Here are some of the places that you can find felt in Singapore; 

1) Daiso – All branches of Daiso in Singapore carry Acrylic Felt, however I have found that IMM Daiso stock the most variety of colors. Felt is available in squares, each pack has varying shades of one color, so you will have to buy a few packs to stock up on a colors that you need for your projects. If you plan to make bigger felt projects, there are rolls available in some primary and secondary shades.

Address : 2 Jurong East Street 21, #03-48/50 IMM Building, 609601

2) Spotlight – You can buy Acrylic felt by piece from Spotlight, however the range of shades are limited.  It is slightly more costly than Daiso, but it make sense if you plan to get a small quantity of colors for specific felt projects.

Address : 68 Orchard Road. Plaza Singapura, Level 5. Singapore 238839

3) Golden Dragon – Similar to Spotlight in terms of variety, but the prices are a little cheaper.

Address : 101 Upper Cross Street. People’s Park Centre #02-51 Singapore 058357

If you plan to get Blended Wool Felt, these are the online stores where I bought my felt supplies:

Prairie Point Junction – they do not ship directly to Singapore, so I have used both V-Post and Borderlinx services to get the items sent to Singapore

Benzie Design, The Felt Shoppe, Sweet Emma Jean – These Etsy stores stock a wide range of colors, their prices are reasonable and they ship worldwide.
