Klippan Yllefabrik

Love a product with a history. Klippan wool spin factory was founded in 1879, not far from where I live in south Sweden. During peak in the seventies 100 people worked in the spinnery.
All products are made from natural materials; wool, cotton and linen. Today they offer textiles with a scandinavian, retro, folklore mix.

I have a friend in Tokyo, that I do another blog project together with. One day she posted a picture of a postcard I had sent her - on a Klippan wool blanket - in Tokyo. The postcard had travelled from here to her and the blanket had done the same travel, independently of my postcard. It was a sweet coincidence.
