Wool from happy sheep
Lofoten Wool produces yarn from sheep reared within the Lofoten Islands and Northern Norway. We recognise the fantastic quality of our local wool and want to make this beautiful, versatile material available through our own range of sustainably produced products.
Why wool from Lofoten? We’re already known for our world class lamb’s meat – and for the same reasons our wool is also excellent! Here, the animals graze on wild mountainsides and remote ocean islets during the light summer months. Fresh air, salt, seaweed and rich pastures (fertilized by sea birds) all contribute to high quality wool production.
Why choose wool? Wool is a wonderful raw material with qualities other textiles can only dream of. Wool is self-cleaning, flame and bacteria-retardant, temperature regulating and keeps you warm even when wet. Wool fibers are highly elastic and offer excellent shape retention with durability. In addition, wool is a 100% renewable resource.
