The production of our Fryske throws
One of the products made in the cloth factory is our Fryske throws. The production of the blanket requires a high level of precision and craftsmanship. The cloth factory employees rely on traditional manufacturing techniques, with particular attention being paid to the selection of materials, weaving techniques and finishing. The blankets are made from high quality Merino wool, known for its softness, warmth and durability. They are carefully woven and then given their characteristic patterns and colors. The combination of quality and traditional craftsmanship makes our Fryske blankets sought-after products that are passed down from generation to generation.
