Description

Wool has always been used in Norway and at Hillesvåg Wool Économusée, visitors are invited to watch the production from beginning to end. Some of the machinery is more than a hundred years old, in some cases older than the factory itself.

The factory has been run by the Myhr family since 1898 when Mikkel Myhr started the plant. Today the fourth generation hold the reigns.

Just a generation earlier, Norway had numerous wool factories, but today only a handful remain. Take this opportunity to experience how colourful, soft yarn continues to be created by machines from a bygone age.
