Everywhere you see sheep, you’re bound to find wool. In a world where commodities are becoming more and more scarce and our focus is shifting from owning to using, wool with its renewability and unique properties stands out. In the 90’s, a farmer was paid 25 Dutch guilders for a sheep’s fur. Today, that same fur is only worth 0,05 to 0,30 cents. In a bizarre turn of events, you now even have to pay to have black wool picked up and processed. This is such a shame, especially when you realize that Dutch sheep produce 1.2 million kilos of wool each year.

It doesn’t have to be this way

With the rise of synthetic fibres and fast fashion, Dutch farmers weren’t able to maintain wool production as a viable industry. As a result, almost the entire Dutch wool industry has disappeared. We believe that using and producing sustainable Dutch wool is possible, so we are constantly researching sustainable applications. We want to find a way to use the current Dutch wool production right here in Holland, and bring back the entire chain on a small scale.

Let’s stay close to home

Because Holland doesn’t have a professional processing industry for wool anymore, we have our fibres professionally washed and spun into yarn in Europe. We want to constantly create sustainable, innovative applications for Dutch wool, so we started with developing sheep, mohair, and alpaca wool yarn.

For producers and consumers

We want to give tomorrow’s producers access to sustainable, innovative applications of wool. In order to do so, our yarns are available for sale, and we team up with brands and designers that have a passion for the matter. Consumers that want to make a difference can turn to our brand, or buy single balls of wool in our web shop.
