Felt balls and beyond - felt stars, felt cords...
For centuries, people have been felting wool to make felt clothing, shoes, tents and jewellery. Fabrics from the last centuries have been found during excavations and show how sustainable and strong a felted fabric can be.
Felt not only brings colors to life, also brings joy to everyday life. When learning colours with children, practising counting for pre-school children, also when decorating and improving your own home or making jewellery. Felt products from Schnuffelinis are durable, versatile and colourful.
Felting wool is an ecologically very degradable material and is made from sharp wool. In the process of fulling (wet felting), the felting wool is kneaded with soapy water, worked and pressed (rolled). The fine wool fibre scales are joined together by this process and the fibres are interlinked, which is also called felting.
In needle felting (dry felting), the wool is repeatedly pierced with felting needles that have barbs all around the needle so that the fibres bind together.
Our wool can be used for both dry and wet felting.
Schnuffelinis wool comes from New Zealand and is produced mulesing free.
Mulesing free wool production ensures that sheep are not subjected to a cruel practice of cutting away the skin around the tail without painkillers or anaesthesia to prevent parasites from settling there.
Furthermore, our wool is AZO free and dyed without toxic chemicals, solvents, petroleum or bleach.
