What is felt?
Our felts are manufactured in Germany from Merino wool that is typically sourced primarily from Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Merino sheep are prized for their fine hair and considered to be the highest quality sheep's wool. Most sheep are sheared once a year (in spring or early summer) as it takes a full year to grow back.
Wool felt is one of the oldest man-made textiles. To produce felt, raw wool undergoes a wet felting process that involves matting, condensing and pressing the fibers. Felting is the natural characteristic of most animal fur to entangle and form matts.
Wool is particularly well suited to felt and is superior to synthetic fibers. Characteristics include an inherent durability and resilience as the crimp or bend in the fibers gives it a natural elasticity. Such flexibility makes it durable and the outer skin of the fiber acts as a protective film, providing abrasion resistance. Lanolin, the thin waxy coating on wool fibers, makes wool naturally water and soil resistant. Because wool retains moisture in every fiber, it resists flame without chemical treatment. Instead of burning when touched by flame, wool chars and self-extinguishes when removed.
Wool felt is a natural product. The processing of wool requires very little environmental impact compared to other natural fibers or man-made fibers. Felt has a life cycle that is substantially longer than other upholstery material. And since wool felt is made of sheep’s wool and viscous staple fibers, this means that after the felt product has been used or become worn out, it can be safely disposed of as it is 100% biodegradable.
Our felts have tested and certified to meet the human-ecological requirements of the standard presently established for products with direct contact to skin according to Product Class II of Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
