To give our youngest ones the space to be at one with nature, we are now focusing on nature-oriented colours inspired by our own surroundings. The inspiration for Lake Green comes from the waters of our region. These include the shimmering mountain lake Blanktjärn, with its clear turquoise water, and of course, our Lake Storsjön, surrounded by both high mountains and large forests. In Swedish folklore, this beautiful lake is home to the mythical lake monster - Storsjöodjuret - whom children and adults alike have often searched for.

Tips for outdoor recreation with children
Taking our children with us to the forest or the mountains has always been natural for us. But we realize that not everybody feels the same way.
Wool - For both mountain hikes and preschool play
It does not matter what activity you do with the children outdoors, it is and will always be unnecessary to freeze. Especially when there are clothes and materials that keep you warm, regardless of whether it is cold outside or if you have gotten wet in the autumn rain.
Experience nature together - create memories for life
Soft love for the kids
Playing takes a lot of energy for our little explorers. Therefore it's important that your children get a really nice rest once they need it. Perhaps just to snuggle up in a warm blanket and tell the tale about their latest adventure. Wrap them up in our cozy Kids blankets made of our unique Ullfrotté Original 400. Perfect for extra warmth on a bed, in the stroller or to cuddle up with on the couch. Our blankets are made of wool so you don´t need to wash them that often. But if you do need to, they are machine washable, so you can keep them fresh and clean no matter how much love your kids give them.
