The production of felt is basically a simple process.
The wool is carded, by which all impurities are removed and a homogeneous carded web is made.
Depending on how strong the felt is to be, a layer of carded web is placed on a conveyor belt, which leads the wool into a steamer, where steam is added while the rotating lid presses the wool together and processes the wool mechanically.
In this process, the felting of the wool fibres is initiated.
If the felt is to be denser and thicker, the felt is processed in milling machines, which will beat and hammer the felt until the required density has been achieved.
Subsequently, the felt is washed and coloured and the surface is finally fine-tuned by means of tip shearing.
