The Kugelgarn material consists of a mixture of polyamide, polypropylene and in some types polyester. Kugelgarn® is the German word for ‘bullet garment’ and has a surface structure made of numerous small fiber balls.
Kugelgarn® is built up in three layers; a ground layer of felt fiber, a surface of fiber balls and in between a layer of aluminum hydroxide.
These three are needled together by an in-house developed technique. It is advised for indoor use especially in areas where high wear resistance is required.
Because of the surface structure it can be laid in every direction showing no joints. This also means a minimum of extra material required for cutting loss.
Easy to repair in case of damage it is also simple to use in a figurative way.
