INSIGHT TO THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

THE CARDING MACHINE

The oldest machine in the factory has been operating in Snældan's factory since 1968. This large machine produces a continuous web of the wool, making it suitable for subsequent processing.

THE SPINNING FRAME

Our current spinning frame has been at our factory since 1994. Once the wool has been through the carding machine, the spinning frame spins the wool into a thin thread for thread-twisting and reeling.

OUR COLOURS

We produce over 20 colours, made up by a combination of natural and dyed colours. We are always looking to add and build upon our colour line to meet our customer expectations.
