The Gentle Roller is designed for the felt artist to use in his/her felting studio. Nearly two years of development went into designing a fail safe unit with minimum moving parts and a slim and streamlined look.
Other felt rolling machines don’t deserve to belong in a fibre artist’s studio. We have moved away from the typical ‘industrial’ machine, which should be located in the garage, operated by men in laboratory coats or kept secured behind a safety cage. We've eliminated the ugly screw down knobs and clamps. Gone are the winding mechanisms, exposed motors, chains or pulleys.
Like many artisans who work from home, your studio is possibly filled with colour and soft fabrics. You may have several ‘machines’ but they probably look like they belong in a studio - a stylish sewing machine, an over-locker, a needle felter, a quilting machine or the like.
We wanted the Gentle Roller to fit into the studio environment. The slimline design makes it suitable for a narrow bench top, and requires minimum height. The spill tray catches any water drops, the motor is hidden out of sight, the rollers are soft polyurethane and pleasant to handle and the display menu is bright and easy to read and use.
