One Material with 1000 Possibilities
Wool and needle felting have experienced rapid growth in recent years and have conquered many markets. Although more and more sophisticated plastics are being developed all the time they have been unable to displace felt because of its excellent and versatile properties.
There is no limit to the functions that felt is able to fulfil! Thus felt products can now be found in almost all sectors, leaving hardly any areas in our everyday life where they do not serve us well.
The characteristics of felt are:
...insulates against heat and cold
...absorbs and emits liquids
...protects from soiling
The design felt I use is a high-class natural product out of 100% finest new wool. Minor changes and slight inclusions of natural fibre on the surface are an evidence of 100% natural origin of the matrial.
The material is hydrophobic equipped and anticipates the enduring fixing of liquidity. Should the material be soild nevertheless, it could be easily cleaned up with soapsuds. Do not use a washingmaschine for cleaning, the felting process will go on and the wool continuing being milled. In case of significant soiling we recommend dry-cleaning.
