Default Inside a Toyo 5x4 film holder.

My dark slide was making an awful noise when being withdrawn, so I drilled the heads off the rivets and opened up the film holder. The spring teeth had buckled and chewed up the felt seals. I may be able to straighten the spring comb and fit new felt. Anyone know of a good place to buy felt?

Is it felt or velvet that's been compacted? I ask only because the only holder I've had apart was a very old glass plate holder and that used velvet. I bought a length of velvet ribbon from a local fabric franchise.
They sell felt as well, although you'd need to cut it to size.
The velvet ribbon was good because I managed to get a strip of the right width and the edges are already cleanly finished - no shedding. The felt I've cut to shape hasn't unravelled in any way, but I don't know whether it sheds or not as I'm using it for a different application.
