Our woolfelt: an original alpine handcraft
For our original Haunold® fulled felt, we only use 100% virgin sheep wool. Fulled felt is one of the oldest materials used by man and yet also stands the test of time and remains trendy. No wonder: it’s a sustainable natural product with truly impressive qualities.
We carry out all stages of production in our craft business in Innichen-San Candido (South Tyrol) from the washed wool to the finished product. The natural wool is broken down into small flocks. Using a carding machine, we comb the wool into loose fleece. With the help of water, heat, steam, and friction, the rough felt is created in the vibro-machine. Then the traditional fulling mill from 1901 is used for crushing and pounding the felt until it becomes the firm and smooth Haunold® fulled felt.
