Hello, I am working on replacing the aged felts on my old baby grand. It’s an older piano, and was the one I learned to play on so I’m wanting to get it back into good shape. I’m been deep cleaning it and noticed that some of the felts need replaced. Can someone direct me as to what kind of material would be used on the ends on the keyblocks, the green thick felt for the damper mechanism, and the ref felt for the stand?

The material on the ends of the keysticks may be what's called Action Cloth. Could also be a dense felt though. Regarding the dampers, do you mean the felt on the damper levers, inside the action cavity? DO you mean red felt on the music desk? It could be a variety of materials. Any photos?
