What is a medieval fuller?
There are two meanings of the word "fuller" applicable to medieval times:
- A fuller cleaned wool to prepare it to being made into cloth. The fuller first pounded the cloth with sticks or walked on it while wet to cleanse it and whiten the fibers. The walking on the cloth gave fullers their other name of "Walker" The job was not pleasant as the ammonia used in the process came from the urine present in the fluid. Additional materials in the wash included Fullers earth (ammonium silicate). The fulling process also thickened the cloth by felting the fibers (tangling them up) and made the material somewhat waterproof. The foul smelling washing liquid was removed before the cloth was stretched and dried.
- Alternately the fuller was a groove in a horseshoe or sword.
This allowed the weapon to be lighter (use less steel) without
decreasing its strength.

A clothes cleaner, not dissimilar in some ways to a modern "dry cleaner". Usually the work was done in a sort of retail shop-- but also privately for the wealthy. This practic…e is documented back to at least 100 BC and continued through the time of Christ. Because of the lack of chemicals, human and animal urine was used, especially to whiten clothes and linens. The fuller, often times a Roman slave, would with bare feet, stomp on the clothes soaked in a tub of urine. Later they would be stretched over a frame to dry and raked over with thistle to draw the texture back out of them. All in all, a sort of purifying process.
Fuller can have either one of two meanings in the context of medieval times: The sword's "fuller" purpose was to act as a flexible spine for the blade that reduced weight and… gave the sword both strength and flexibility. Alternately a fuller (a person) worked with woolen cloth. The fuller first pounded the cloth with sticks or walked on it while wet to cleanse it and whiten the fibers. The walking on the cloth gave fullers their other name of "Walker" The job was not pleasant as the ammonia used in the process came from the urine in the fluid. Additional materials in the wash included Fullers earth (ammonium silicate). The fulling process also thickened the cloth by felting the fibers (tangling them up) and made the material somewhat waterproof. As an aside the foul smelling washing liquid was removed before the cloth was stretched and dried.

A fuller was the person who cleaned and thickened freshly woven cloth, especially wool, back in the olden days, in order to remove impurities (grease, dirt, etc.) and ma…ke the cloth ready to use. To "full" the cloth meant to clean and thicken it. The word "fuller" comes from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning "white." Fullers have existed since the days of the Roman Empire at least, and probably earlier. Methods of fulling have varied with place and time. There is a lot of traditional vocabulary and tradition associated with the profession. To "full" a sweater yourself, wash it in hot water in your washer. The wool will thicken up and become cleaner. Once something is thickened by fulling, it cannot be unthickened.
Fulling was a part of the process in transforming raw wool to cloth. It's a process similar to felting, and helps clean and thicken the wool. they used urine and fullings clay… to make the materials rub together and make it softer.
Fulling is a step in woollen cloth making which involves the cleansing of cloth (particularly wool) to eliminate oils, dirt, and other impurities, and making it thicker. A cl…ay called 'fullers earth' was used to do this and the people that did it were called fullers.
Medieval comes from the Latin medi ( um ) aev ( um ) "the middle age". It refers to the roughly 1000-year period between the Ancient Times (up until the fall of Rome in West…ern Europe in 476 AD) and the Renaissance or modern era (about the 14th century). Hence "Middle" Ages.
There were more established musical instruments by then. There were beginning to be a lot of good performers on those instruments. Composers were broadening their experimentat…ion with music to include two and three part harmonies, instead of just individual polyphonic lines. Those are the three main reasons - there are lots of others. But your question is well put. Renaissance music did indeed sound "fuller" than medieval music.
