Scheepjes produce stunning yarns and have a spectacular range.
After 190 years of wool production Scheepjeswol closed in 1989. Twenty-two years later, family-owned business De Bondt, a haberdashery wholesaler located in Tynaarlo, Drenthe, took over the Scheepjeswol brand name and gave it a new lease of life so that today we can again use the yarn of this famous Dutch brand.
The Scheepjeswol logo shows a ship based on a ‘Samoereus’, an inland vessel that among other things was used to transport peat from the bogs around Veenendaal. You can find the same ship in Veenendaal’s coat of arms.
