This is lovely soft felted wool which I get from Quilting Acres Etsy shop. I've always had really great customer service from this shop and there is a wonderful selection of felted wool in lots of luscious colors. The back of the ornaments is a dark green felt. I use 100% wool felt imported from the Netherlands. I use this same felt for the little flowers and leaves which are all cut freehand.
I'll let you know how it goes with the sparkly stuff!
