Dale of Norway Yarns was founded in 1879 by Peter Jebsen, in the small village of Dale, which is about 40 minutes from Bergen, Norway. They produce fine wool and cotton yarns in a variety of colors and utilize a variety of processes in the development of their yarns to ensure a high quality product. For example, their scouring lines, which remove dirt and small fibers from the wool, are one of only two left in Norway and a handful in the world.
In 1956, Dale of Norway began what is now a long-standing tradition of producing the official licensed sweaters of the Norwegian Olympic Ski Team and the Olympic Games, the most recent being the official sweater of the 2010 Olymic Games in Vancouver. Dale of Norway Yarns also collaborates with famous designers like Tine Solheim and Arne and Carlos.
