From poetd at KVR
"Pianoteq also lets you swap any pedal you like, so you can have a celeste pedal on any of its pianos, which gives a very felt like sound (a celeste pedal put a piece of cloth or similar between hammer and strings)."

Great list! Midnight grand, AFAIK, has cotton instead of felt. But definitely needs to be in this list!

sleutelbos, as per your suggestion I was going to move the Midnight Grand to the Felt Piano list but cannot locate the post edit button. Oh well!

Oh, I see the edit functionality is available for a limited time.

Not sure why I am so attracted at least lately to the more subdued piano. The first time I heard the Spitfire felt piano it was love at first hearing. I like sustain notes and the felt piano when played slowly one is obliged to focus on the sound of the notes themselves. I hope to eventually try some of these pianos and see what I can produce.

I also decided to fashion a nice strip of felt off an old snooker table and staple it to a length of wood to dangle between the hammers and the strings.
