myfelt felt and felt ball rugs as well as all of our other felt products are traditionally handmade under fair and sustainable working conditions in selected partner manufactories in Nepal.
High Quality Wool
All myfelt products are made of 100% virgin wool. The raw material used for production, the pure wool, comes from sheep exclusively from New Zealand. This virgin wool is some of the highest quality of its kind in the world. The material of origin offers durability and quality at the highest level.
New Zealand was also chosen by myfelt because of its high ethical standards and legal requirements in regards to wool production.
Animal Welfare and Protection
Since October 2018, a special law in New Zealand guarantees the animal-friendly and gentle shearing of animals - known as the mulesing ban. Animal welfare and protection, along with fair and transparent working conditions, form the essential corporate philosophy for myfelt.
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.
Comb & Colour
The pure sheep's wool is first carded in selected partner factories in Nepal that have proven themselves over many years: the fibres are aligned so that an even, beautiful pile is created. This is then washed several times. The wool is then given its final character in dye works certified by
