Wool felt is made by stressing and shrinking wool fibre in hot water. This process makes a warm and water resistant fabric. It stretches to fit your head or your feet and is easy to wash as it is already shrunk. Use cold water and Woolite soap nonetheless. Rainbow Road Trading’s wool felt is made by a small family business that fairly employs low income women in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Rainbow Road Trading is from Saltspring Island. All of their woolens are hand knit by a Women’s Co-Op in Nepal. They have been working with these women for over 20 years. The wool comes from New Zealand due to a lack of suitable wool in Nepal or India. The women receive the raw wool and clean, card, spin and dye the wool. The wool is then knit into socks, hats, gloves, mitts, scarves and sweaters. These export quality products are correctly sized and designed for western tastes. The garments are machine washable in cool or warm water, and dried flat (not in dryer).
