The Gentle Roller - wet felt rolling machine
The Gentle Roller wet felt rolling machine is a new device for an ancient craft - a felting machine invented for ﬁbre artists of the 21st Century. The Gentle Roller is a break-through in the exhausting and repetitive process of hand rolling, helping you to create better felt or nuno felt — without hard work.
We’ve created a compact, safe, and attractive tool that complements the studio and works quietly beside you, freeing you for more important activities like planning your next piece or enjoying a well-earned break.
It may be compact in height and depth but we haven't scrimped on the important dimension - we've delivered you a large roller platform. The smaller Gentle Roller comes with a roller width of 1100mm (43 inch) allowing you to comfortably handle 36 inch wide fabric. The larger roller width of 1400mm (55 inch) will easily cope with 48 inch wide fabric. Both machines can also be used for multiple items at once if you work with narrower pieces plus they come with an optional Gentle Roller Fulling Drum.
What makes it unique - and the right choice for you!
