About Us

We founded our family enterprise in 1985. In the beginning, we only ran a small manual spinning plant and our wool combing works. Then we added our plant color dyeing mill. The principles that rule our personal life also apply in the manufactoring and distribution of our products: We want to use and to produce sustainable, ecological and emission-free products. Since 1995 we are a Bioland-certified manufacturer of sheep wool, since 2015 we are a member of the IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft, International Association of Natural Textiles). Our wool comes exclusively from sheeps raised in certified organic animal husbandry in Germany. Our dyes are plant-based. For mordants we use alum and tartar.

Enjoy the naturalness of our products as we do!
