Germany

In 1836 ennobled entrepreneurs  started a spinning mill in the small village Glücksbrunn. In 1827 the first steam engine was put in use to automate the processes. At the end of century the factory became too small and a new factory was built across the street.

The mill made Kammgarn, or in English worsted wool yarn. The essential feature of worsted yarn is straight, parallel fibers. Originally, long, fine staple wool was spun to create worsted yarn; today, other long fibers are also used. The old factory is restored in 2005. The newer factory is abandoned since 1994 and in a very bad state.
