We’ve recently had several inquires about cold mangles, an environmentally friendly method for pressing your household linens. Traditional cold mangles have been used for centuries in Northern Europe. Linens and other flat fabrics were placed between two rollers or underneath a weighted bed with varying amounts of pressure applied to achieve a smooth fabric.
Cold mangles manufactured today are electrified. Fabric is placed on a feeder sheet of cloth and then fed between 2 smooth aluminum cylinders and rolled under pressure. We’ve included photos of a cold mangle we are interested in carrying at Halcyon Yarn. If sold in the United States, the cold mangle would retail between $500 and $700.
We’d like to get your thoughts. Is this a product in which you’d be interest? Let us know if you think Halcyon Yarn should sell cold mangles. Leave us a comment or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
