Hi
I can't say about your guys in the US, but I found it at an automotive re-upholsterer up here in the frozen wastelands of Canada. Ask for automotive carpet underlay. They had two kinds here- just make sure he understands it's the wool felt type you're after.

The best part is it's dirt cheap.

I found it at a high end flooring and carpet dealer. They called it jute padding but it was wool felt, symantics I guess. It comes in different sizes and only cost me $30.00 for a large piece. Was enough to sound proof a '67 VW,top and bottom, and four speaker projects.

My source is McMaster-Carr , just type "F-13 " in the search box and you'll be in wool felt heaven
Be sure to type a space after the "13".

I have a friend that felts old sweaters and uses the material for mittens, bags, etc. It's a well-known technique in the craft hobby world, and you'll find plenty of info out there if you search for it. Basically you wash in very hot water and the fibers entangle into a medium-dense felt up to 1/2" thick as the sweater shrinks to half its size.

Since you can buy a sweater at a thrift store or rummage sale for just a few bucks, this is definitely the cheap way to go.
