Wool felt

Wool felt is a classic component of the history of civilization. Over the course of the centuries, the production process has been refined and mechanized; the principle of manufacturing wool and the basic raw material are equivalent.

Sheep's wool is able to be transformed into felt via moisture, warmth, and abrasion. This produces a homogenous textile surface formation, i.e. wool felt. Depending on the production process, felt may be soft as batting or as hard as wood. There are also a number of options for enriching felt to customize its properties to match the needs of the customer. The areas of application of wool felt are accordingly diverse.

Merino sheep's wool is used as a raw material because of its fine quality. This is supplied exclusively from overseas.

Depending on the customer's requirements or the desired properties of the wool felt, this Merino wool may be offset with other fibrous materials or even metallic fibers.

Enriching felt, or finishing it, is an important part of our production process. The specific qualities of felt enable numerous improvements to be added. The material may be made insect-proof, decatized, finished, waterproof, or flame-retardant. Plus something that is especially important today: Felt can even be used to protect against extreme warmth and noise.
