Original Schladming Loden. By Steiner.
Near Schladming at the foot of theDachstein Massif, where the Steiner familyfounded a “Lodenwalke” (mill) in1888 – that is where the SchladmingLoden is produced. The wool used comesfrom Tyrolean mountain sheep,which Steiner purchases directly fromlocal farmers. It is spun on ring spinningmachines into tear-resistant woolyarn. The yarn is then woven into a grayfabric. „Walken“ is the fulling process – the heart of the Loden manufacture, inwhich the woolen cloth is made denserand approximately 40% more compact– and takes place on an old hammerfulling machine built in 1888. Afterroughing, brushing, shearing, pressingand decating (the cloth is treated withwater vapor before it is cut, so it doesnot shrink later on) an extremely robustmaterial arises, which balances coldand heat, is windproof, abrasion resistantand only slightly susceptible todirt – an original Schladming Loden justas it has proven itself over a hundredyears with mountain farmers andmountaineers.
