SCHEEPJES

Since 2010, after a twenty-two-year hiatus, we can use Scheepjeswol yarns again. The rise, success, demise and revival of a genuine Dutch brand.

This all changed in the second half of the 60s. Wages in The Netherlands increased rapidly, at Scheepjeswol certainly 10% per year for a few years in a row. This increase in costs was not allowed to be passed on to the customer. Moreover, the five-day working week was introduced, which caused a decrease in production. The 70s brought on even more serious problems: cheaper products from countries outside of Europe and a shrinking market eventually led to Scheepjeswol’s bankruptcy in 1988. In 1989, the buildings on the factory site in Veenendaal were torn down. In its place housing and the Scheepjeshof shopping centre arose. It was the end of almost 190 years of wool production, at least for now. Twenty-two years later, family-owned business De Bondt, a haberdashery wholesaler located in Tynaarlo, Drenthe, 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.
