Heya.
I’m restringing a piano and the old felt was close to a 1/8 inch thickness. To buy online it seems all felt of that type is a quarter inch and would be unusable. I bought some at a craft shop at about 1/16 inch. If I use the thin felt, do you folks suppose the strings will tear through as I restring? I can’t believe how difficult it is to buy different types of felt.

Quarter inch felt can be torn in half thickness-wise. I would not use craft store felt in a piano.
