Felt is one of those rare materials that can be thin enough to weave or thick enough to build a headboard. The thick, industrial-grade stuff can be hard to find, which is why Sutherland is a good resource.
Based out of Michigan, Sutherland is one of the largest suppliers of industrial felt in North America. For home projects, check out their selection of Architectural/Specialty Materials. They can custom-dye wool felt between 1/16" to 1" thick—the colors shown above are pre-dyed options for wool/nylon pool table felt. They also have a line of 100% tan (undyed) wool "Eco-Felt" that ranges from 1/8" to 1" thick in soft, medium, or firm density. As an added bonus, the Eco-Felt is less expensive than SAE (industrial standard) white, gray, or custom-dyed felts. To see Sutherland Felt in action, check out Maxwell's Felt Sliding Door project.
