Ullcentrum was set up by Ann Linderhjelm in July 1998 . Like so many great people that have followed her, Ann always had a genuine interest in natural materials and when she realised that the farmers threw away or burned a lot of the raw wool, she started thinking about how it could potentially be used.
Ann started by collecting the raw wool mainly from Öland in Sweden but also regionally from around Småland and Blekinge. She then continued by creating Ullcentrum entirely from scratch, prioritising product development and design, thus creating a market for the local wool. Eventually a range of felted wool, yarn and knitted products was launched.
The Woolly Thistle is honored to be one of a very few US retailers who stock Ullcentrum, specifically their 3-ply worsted weight yarn. Ullcentrum fits perfectly within The Woolly Thistle's mission to supply quality yarn from small businesses that value wool and it's positive impact on it's local region.

Swedish wool yarn is strong, soft and easy to knit and weave with. It is also well suited for felting should you so wish.
This woolly wool has an almost silky finish and the colors glow! It's a lovely and round yarn so perfect for cables. Coming in 12 shades including 4 grey and a cream as well as deeply saturated colors, this a versatile offering and a great choice for sweater knitting that won't take forever to knit up! Of course this will make smaller projects such as hats and mittens even faster.
