I buy a pack of felt at the dollar tree and use double sided tape to attach...one pack for a dollar will do about 30 squeegees

WHEN they have it..it's in the crafts section. If they don't..any craft store..even Walmart or Target should have it. I bought a flannel pillow case at a yardsale awhile back  just for when I run out. It should work just as well.

I've put a sock on the cheese in a pinch for nearly the same result. Have to be careful though, some fabrics will still scratch.

I go to Michaels craft store and buy sheets of felt with adhesive backs. They are 8.5 x 11 sheets and I cut them up in strips to go on the squeegees. 

Cheap and works great.

 Since no one is going to try and answer the actual question I will try to.

If it doesn't say in the listing then we can't know for sure the blend for this felt, but I will make some educated guesses to help you. More than likely it's not a natural fiber like wool given the price point so an acrylic synthetic fiber felt would probably be the material here.

 

I believe most felt used on squeegees will be non natural synthetic felt. Felt from a fabric store will work fine given the thickness is adequate.

I just buy them or the sleeves they are cheap and my time is worth more then the cost of the squeegees
