Ulvang stands for functional, durable and responsibly produced wool clothing for all seasons and all adventures.
We launched our first product in 1995: the Ulvang Spesial Sock. It rapidly won the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts, and inspired us to explore other categories where this unique natural fiber would perform at its best. At the time, athletes and outdoor enthusiasts usually opted for synthetic or cotton garments. However, we knew that wool was a superior material, functional in use, and kind to the environment.
We are proud to be one of the pioneers in wool outdoor clothing, contributing to the sustainability journey from synthetics to wool in the sports and outdoor industry.
We are wool.
They have spent over 6.000 years outdoors researching our Norwegian climate (which has heaps of weather and can be harsh). In their state of the art laboratories, they have developed one of the most advanced materials ever made into fabric.
It's important for us that the animals we depend on have a good life. We work exclusively with farmers that take animal welfare seriously
Wool - nature's own performance fiber
Wool is a natural protein fiber which grows naturally on sheep, consuming a simple blend of grass, water, air and sunshine.
Wool will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of months or years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Sheep produce a new fleece every year, making wool a natural, renewable resource.
