Biella, a northern town in the region of Piedmont has been leading the manufacturing of wool since the 1800s. This is why we go to Italy for the best merino wool available. Biella Yarn by Südwolle utilizes state-of-the-art processes to refine this highly versatile natural resource.
Behind Biella Yarn stands the family-operated company - Südwolle Gebr. Steger OHG was founded in 1966. In 2000 Biella Yarn by Südwolle was founded in Italy, uniting the tradition and experience of Südwolle with fresh ideas.
