Natural fibres have minor variations in structure which can affect how much dye is absorbed, therefore colours are subject to variation between each production batch. The material is dyed using environmentally friendly products.
100% wool is regarded as a safe fibre in its flammability. It is self-extinguishing & inherently flame retardant. The natural flame resistant properties of the wool fibre are connected with its relatively high nitrogen & moisture content. When considering flammability, it must be remembered that virtually all materials are flammable in certain atmospheres & conditions.
Flame Proofed ELITE is available upon request & subject to minimum batch quantities. This treated material will provide a felt that is tested to BS476: Part 7: 1997 Class 1Y.
If soiling should occur, gently spot clean the area with warm soapy water being careful not to saturate the felt with moisture.
