Felt Fabric: Souq Al Dira and Daiso

I went searching for felt in Qatar a few months back.  I started with the fabric section of Souq Waqif.  Nothing but then they recommended that I go to the Souq Al Dira (the fabric market), across the street from Souq Waqif.  This sounded exciting and it was!  There were so many shops with fabric and craft materials.  After going in many shops, I still didn't find felt or anyone who knew what it was but I did find some nice navy wool that would make due.  I found the very nice German wool at Al-Rawnaq Trading Center.  Then, I stumbled upon a huge craft shop, Areej Textiles, and of course there were some big rolls of felt, so mission accomplished.
