An acrylic adhesive backed felt is available from

    PO Box 214
    Rosemont, NJ 08556

They have several 'museum related' colors in stock for sale.
Perhaps the maker of this felt has your color.  The use of acrylic
instead of wool felt makes the material more inert.  The adhesive
has been tested by Benchmark for its stability.  A catalog is
available from them which includes this product; a color card is
also available for the asking.  This company sells mount and
installation materials and equipment.
