Wool processing from flock to fabric

A lean manufacturing structure, a fleet of machinery spread out across 10,000 m² of space, with 40 employees operating 24 looms that produce 400,000 m² of fabric each year

Lanificio Paoletti manufactures carded wool textiles from start to finish, from the spinning of blended, dyed wool flock to the finishing of cloth that is carded, spun, twisted, warped, woven, and darned in-house.
