Filcolana produces quality yarns for knitting and crochet from only the best wool and fibres which are sent to spinning mills in Peru, England and Italy. Filcolana focus on quality, sustainability and responsibility and all of their yarn is mulesing-free.
One of the most popular yarns from Filcolana is their Peruvian Wool. This wool comes from Peruvian highland sheep which are a cross between corriedale and merino. These sheep graze in the Peruvian highlands, which contributes to the wool's characteristic fullness and beautiful softness. Mulesing is not used on the Peruvian highland sheep, which makes this yarn a great choice for those who want to use mulesing free yarns.
How is Filcolana yarn made?
Filcolana develop their colour palette in-house by some of Scandinavia's most skilled knitting and crochet designers. The colouring materials used are produced according to EU standards and comply with all guidelines for harmless chemistry and environmental considerations.
Some of the designers are already established on the Nordic knitting scene whilst others are at the beginning of their design careers. For Filcolana, it is important that the designers get the opportunity to express their creativity, and everything is done to support them in their creative process.
Filcolana's history stretches back to 1952 and they have been owned by several families over the years. In 2009, Nanna Gudmand-Høyer took over Filcolana, and together with her skilled employees, she has run the company ever since.
