These felts are not woven, though they are glued to a red cloth layer that is woven.  There is some debate as to which are better, flat damper felts or grooved damper felts.  The extent to which your hammers, pickups, and damper combs are aligned would surely be a factor.  If not well aligned, some tines may need to contact the felt dampers off center, which is likely not a good fit (literally and figuratively) to grooved felts.

Yep, these are not woven felts. They are standard felts that are grooved and glued to a red cloth layer as has been said. Woven felts were used on late MK2's and V's and did a much better job of stopping the tines, thought they do start to unravel over time.
