Silkeborg Uldspinderi was established in the Danish city of Silkeborg in 1987. However, the company draws threads back to the 1940s, when the family’s first wool spinning mill was founded. Since then, raw wool and alpaca have been the focus of Silkeborg Uldspinderi, and the fascination of these unique natural materials has remained intact over the years.
