Wool is the main fibre for our carpets. A natural material with roots back to the dawn of time. Throughout the centuries it has been appreciated
for its excellent characteristics. Wool is resilient, hardy, easy to dye, resistant to dirt and liquid, easy to clean, non-inflammable, and it
insulates against both heat and cold.
We spin our yarn in two qualities: Spirit and Hardtwist. Each with its unique expression. Both made of 100% New Zealand wool.
Spirit consists of softly twisted long and light wool fibres that give a smooth surface, soft as velvet. Spirit comes in 99 clear colours.
Hardtwist is an endurable tightly twisted yarn with a rougher surface structure. We dye Hardtwist in 53 different colours.
We also use flax for some of our carpets because of the beautiful nuance variations made possible by the flax yarn.
The Almedahls colour chart for dyed yarns is perfectly coordinated with our plain coloured curtains and furnishing fabrics. All part of a concept for easy coordination.
