In Collaboration with MatterOfTrust.org “The Clean Wave Program”.
The FeltCrafts Hair Mat Machine is used to make needle-felted “Eco Mats” from waste human hair obtained from hair salons. In addition, it can make Eco Mats from waste camelid fiber and waste fiber from sheep and other farm animal fiber. The hair or fiber is laid out on a guide ramp in front of the machine and a motorized roller moves it through the needle punching area and out the back of the machine. When the hair or fiber moves through the needle punching area it is compacted into an Eco Mat. These mats are used to pick up oil from spills in the oceans and other areas.
