The Drive Roller - Efficient & Consistent Rolling

The Gentle Roller wet felting machine sets itself apart with its unique 'drive roller' configuration, offering maximum efficiency and consistency in the felting process.

Unlike typical triangular rolling machines that rely on clamped rollers to hold the felt bundle against a powered roller, the Gentle Roller ensures a secure grip. In traditional machines, issues such as slippage, excessive or inadequate pressure from the screws, and even ejection of the felt bundle can occur. Uneven felting can also result if one side has more pressure than the other.

With the Gentle Roller, these problems are eliminated. The drive roller, with the felting bundle securely wrapped around it, ensures a synchronized cycle. When the drive roller completes one cycle, so does the fabric, as it is an integral part of the drive system. The gravity-loaded idle rollers apply consistent pressure along the length of the drive roller, leading to better felting outcomes.

Additionally, the Gentle Roller's unique oscillating motion replicates the hand rolling technique, providing superior agitation. This forward-backward motion creates natural agitation that surpasses the results of one-way rotation found in other felt making machines.

The rollers of the Gentle Roller are made of safe and easy-to-handle polyurethane, designed specifically to evenly agitate the felt bundle. Unlike manual labor, the machine does not tire out over the course of the day, ensuring greater efficiency, effectiveness, and consistency in the felting process.

The Gentle Roller wet felting machine revolutionizes the felting experience by addressing common challenges, delivering enhanced control, and achieving superior results.
