Bockens linen, cotton and cottolin yarns from Holma-Helsinglands AB are some of the finest quality available today. Holma-Helsinglands AB Bockens was established in 1898 as a flax-spinning mill. In 1950 the company was one of Europe's most modern spinning mills. Their yarns are known worldwide to be of the highest quality. They don't spin any yarns today but they do bleach, dye, twist and wind yarns for weaving, lace making and for the textile industry. They bleach and dye eco-friendly yarns. Most of their yarns are marked with "Good Environmental Choice" -- the eco label from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation.
The extraordinary color palette and the yarns themselves are designed to inspire traditional and contemporary use, as seen in Sweden's rich weaving heritage.
About Garnhuset yarn
The Hedström Dye Company (Garnfärgeriet C. Hedström AB), founded in 2006 by yarn dyer Claes Hedström, originally operated as a contract dyeing company for manufacturers of rugs, textiles, and clothing. In 2013 they acquired the Garnhuset yarn manufactury, bringing their wealth of experience in the dye industry. Garnhuset now also dyes their own yarns, which they sell to weavers, knitters, and crocheters. They buy their yarns direct from spinneries without any middlemen; some of their dyeing is done in Czechia, Germany, Spain, and Turkey. Their dyeing meets EU environmental requirements. Many of the stages of yarn production, from drying and winding to rolling to labeling and packaging, are done manually by Garnhuset's skilled employees.
