Appreciative having a rug manufactured with felt (8)


I believe the answer is:


'appreciative' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'a rug manufactured with felt' is the wordplay.
'manufactured with' indicates anagramming the letters.
'arug' with its letters anagrammed with 'felt' makes 'GRATEFUL'.

'having' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for grateful that I've seen before include "Showing appreciation for kindness" , "Beholden" , "Showing gratitude" , "Felt a rug (anag)" , "quantity of coal" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
