FeltLOOM Frequently Asked Questions
Do the needles break often?

Are the needles easy to change?

How do you maintenance the FeltLOOM?
You dust periodically. The motors are sealed and require no maintenance. The density or thickness felt will effect stress on the machine.
Check for any lose screws or bolts periodically.
How many times do you put the fibers through?
You put fibers through on both sides, (up and down), and then as many times as it needed to create the fabric you desire. The number of times is determined by felt or fabric density desired.
