Dale of Norway has a long and unique history of environmentally friendly products and production. Our Knitwear is made with 100% natural wool. The wool fiber is known as one of the most eco-friendly fibers available and is often called nature's own high-tech fiber due to its superior properties. Besides using natural fibers, Dale of Norway’s production is powered by sustainable hydroelectric energy generated by local waterfalls in the Dale Valley — and we only use Oeko-Tex 100 certified products for our production.
The little village of Dale is nestled next to the fjords, where birches cling to the steep mountain walls and waterfalls flow down from the mountains above. It was here that Peter Jebsen, a businessman from Bergen, arrived in 1879 and became fascinated by the spectacular surroundings. He quickly recognized the potential for hydro power and apparel production and established the Dale of Norway company the same year. For more than 135 years Dale of Norway has maintained its production in the Dale valley and continues to knit beautiful, timeless sweaters and technical outerwear.
Dale of Norway's award winning Knitshell™ jackets are simply a technical wonder made with wool.
