What is the difference between wool felt and pressed felt?
Our wool felt is made from the best available natural felt. It is colored by nature and therefore doens't contain nasty chemicals. It is highly resistant to abrasion, protects floors and Wobbels and has good sound deadening. The risk of pieces coming loose like with cork is practically zero. It feels warm and comfortable to the touch, and is available in beautiful colors.

Choosing the right Wobbel for your flooring.
For hard floors like laminate, wood, stone, tile, linoleum and marmoleum we advise felt.
This will protect the Wobbel, the floor and reduces noise. With sensitive or scratch sensitive flooring it is advisable to use a rug or mat anyway, irrespective of whether felt or cork is unerneath the Wobbel. Unprotected parts can cause damage to the floor or the Wobbel.
We have no experience with vinyl flooring, but to be safe choose felt.
If you have carpet or a large rug in the house, you can choose a bare Wobbel.
The Wobbel may be damaged by the use on hard and / or irregular surfaces. In particular, inter alia, floor tiles. If there is no felt at the bottom, we recommend using a rug or mat to protect the Wobbel, the floor and your ears. With the convex side up (ᴖ) the felt provides no protection and it is advisable to use a rug or mat under the Wobbel. By shifting the Wobbel with the convex side up (ᴖ) on such floors can cause damage to the sides of the Wobbel.
