This rectangular Tolmount seat of grey Gotland coat is yet another typical handmade product from No Trace Crafts.
Protect yourself with this seat patch from rising cold from the ground or a tree trunk. Because wool insulates even when wet you may not always keep dry pants but warm buttocks. Stuff this Tolmount seat flap into your bag when you go for a walk. You will notice that that coffee break or that observation has suddenly become a lot more pleasant. Also in the evening by a possible campfire or at home near the fire pit you do not have to be afraid of a spark. Wool does not burn but scorches, it is therefore a lot safer than all synthetic alternatives.
Also at home, this felted patch can be a welcome addition to the garden furniture. Place it on the wooden bench or on the chair during a fresh spring or autumn evening. You then enjoy being outside a little longer, with or with a fire pit.
This Tolmount seat patch is made by wet a shaved sheepskin on a carde fleece surface.
Because sheep wool has a coarse scale structure, it tangles easily. If you aid this with the help of soap and water, this is completely easy. The carded fleece then serves as the basis for the shear. By placing the shaved side on the carding membrane and this first carefully but later with more and more pressure and warm to assemble, this patch is created. Vollen is making felt by beating the wool for a long time. Whoever’s doing this job is called a fuller.
Because a shear is used for this, the sheep naturally stays alive. And thus gives several times a beautiful coat that can be spun or full.
