Felt rug pads can be found in many sizes. But there are limitations when a very large pad is desired. Felt pad is made at a standard width of 12 feet. If a rug is larger than 12 ft wide by any length a solution would be to create two pads of equal size that could be installed side by side to create a larger size pad. This technique is very common but if following this procedure, be sure to find a good pad dealer that has stock of felt rug pad rolls. Then ask for a custom size to be created. Most dealers will accomodate this type of request and will give special price quotes as well. You should insist that the custom size you order is cut from the same stock roll of pad to eliminate any thickness variation in the felt rug pad. The felt pad does have some variation in thickness which is inherent in the felt needlepunch process. If your two pads under the rug are at different thicknesses it will show through to the rug and make a very unpleasant appearance.
