Felt is a textile which obtains its structure through the preparation of fibres which are difficult to separate instead of a classic weaving. This manufacturing process was already used in the Neolithic Age.
In traditional wet felting, wool and animal hair are treated with warm steam and soap, whereby the upper dandruff layer of the individual hairs is set up and wedged together.
Felt is particularly characterized by its elasticity and resistance. It is able to adapt to the contours of the body by means of pressure and body temperature as well as to insulate effectively against cold and heat. Felt can effectively absorb and release moisture.
