Cutting Acrylic Felt

Hi, I've been using my emblaser to cut acrylic felt. In the beginning I had a few issues with burn and rough feeling edges, which I solved with the addition of a honeycomb base. The felt I've been using is 100% acrylic (brand is Craft Factory which I think comes from China). However, when I changed suppliers (as I needed a larger range of colours) to a local company here in the UK who also supply 100% acrylic felt, I am once again having trouble with rough edges! The new felt seems slightly denser and thinner (the fibres appear to be more compacted), but other than that they're made out of the same material. Does any one have any ideas as to why this might be happening and how to solve it? I've tried increasing the speed and reducing the laser power to the point where it isn't even cutting through and I'm still getting the same issue.
