High Quality Wool
All myfelt products are made from 100% virgin wool. The raw material to be processed, the pure wool, comes from sheep exclusively from New Zealand. Myfelt sources these exclusively from the New Zealand farmers' association "New Zealand Wool Services International Ltd (WSI)". This guarantees pure wool of one of the best quality in the world and, above all, sustainable and animal welfare-friendly husbandry and gentle shearing of the sheep, which is what we love most Hearts (certified mulesing-free). It is one of the highest quality of its kind in the world. The original material offers durability and quality at the highest level.
Origin of the Wool
The wool used by myfelt is sourced exclusively from New Zealand Wool Services International Ltd (New Zealand farmers’ association). In addition to the excellent quality, this association pays strict attention to the observance of animal welfare and sustainable sheep farming and the “mulesing-free” and thus gentle shearing of the sheep. The myfelt promise: No animal has suffered in the entire manufacturing process and in the extraction of the raw material wool.
All myfelt products are made from 100% pure and sustainably sourced new wool from New Zealand. New Zealand virgin wool is one of the highest quality and most durable wool types in the world. Throughout the entire manufacturing process, myfelt does not use any chemical additives. From the raw material to the finished product, everything remains natural.
Free of harmful substances for a healthy room atmosphere
Combing & dyeing
The pure sheep's wool is first carded in selected and proven partner factories in Nepal: the fibers are aligned so that a uniform, beautiful pile is created. This is then washed several times. The wool is then given its final character in “Label STEP®” FairTrade certified dyeing plants – dyed according to purely ecological guidelines and European standards. All colors and all other components of myfelt products have been tested for harmful substances and are harmless to health.
Felting & making
The felt or each individual felt ball is brought into its final shape by hand in several steps with the highest precision. With myfelt felt ball carpets, the finished felt balls are connected to each other using a specially developed knotting process, which also enables the carpet to be used on both sides. This creates a product of the highest craftsmanship: For example, a carpet with up to 50,000 individually sewn felt balls by hand.
