TECHNOLOGY OF SPINNING WOOD
The production of the our firelighters starts with the careful selection of a suitable softwood (namely spruce, pine), which are cut into wood 1 metre logs that are then planed. The planing of the wood produces wood fibres called wood-wool, which have a thickness of 0.1 to 0.3 mm and a width of 2 to 15 mm. Then after they are spun Using special “spinning wheels”, this raw wood wool is then twisted into a rope with a diameter of approximately 25 mm, which is subsequently wound on to rolls. Each roll consists of approx. 150 m of wood wool rope. Because it is handmade, the diameter of the final rope may fluctuate slightly.
Then the wood wool rope is shortened to the required length suitable for further processing and allowed to dry. Drying is a long process that takes several weeks. After drying thoroughly, the wool rope is dipped in a hot bee’s wax bath, left to drip off and cool down. The rope prepared in this way is then cut on an automatic saw to the size and boxed to you..!
