Wool felt products...who knew?

There are so many items we use everyday, and never give a thought about
how or where they are made.

Bouckaert Industrial Textiles (BIT) is a sister company to Northwest Woolen Mills.  BIT products are made in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Industrial felt is used for stamp pads, highlighter nibs and cosmetic applicators.

Wool felt is used for automotive applications like gaskets and soundproofing in the
hood of our cars.


Wool felt and synthetic felt are manufactured and made in saddle pads, keeping the
horse and rider comfortable.

B.I.T. manufactures the felt hammers for pianos, the little felt strips on chalkboard erasers, the felt on the bottom of revolving doors and the seals for clothes dryers.  Who knew? 
Have a great day,
