Surplus wool and local production
Ülle carpets give Finnish sheep's wool a new life in a time when the vast majority of wool otherwise ends up as waste. We use local domestic wool in Ülle collection. However, the production process is not completely uncomplicated.
A production process based on recycling is often more challenging and time-consuming compared to a production based on virgin raw materials. The production process based on surplus wool is also slow and expensive. First, the wool is washed, then dried and sorted at a weaving studio in Karjaa. After that, we send the wool to a nearby area to be spun. In the end the wool returns to our weaving studio, where the weaving process begins with traditional carpet machines.
The journey of lamb's wool from spinning to final carpet is an expensive and time-consuming process, but worth all the effort in the end. The result is a thick, luxurious, and ecological carpet that lasts from generation to generation.
