Collection: Scheepjes

From the earliest inception in 1799 to its height in 1962, Scheepjeswol grew to have 900 employees: the company had expanded and had been modernised in the 15 years following WW II.

Unfortunately, in the latter part of the 60's an into the 70's, higher wages and the sourcing of cheaper products from countries outside of Europe, caused a decrease in production and eventually led to Scheepjeswol’s bankruptcy in 1988. It was the end of almost 190 years of wool production.

Twenty-two years later, family-owned business De Bondt, a haberdashery 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.
