Around 1750, the processing of wool became the most important industry in Veenendaal in the province of Utrecht. In the beginning it was mostly cottage industries but by the end of the 17th century small businesses had started to emerge. The Scheepjes brand was one of them and stood the test of time overcoming many setbacks until 1988 when a shrinking market and cheaper products from Europe eventually led to the demise of the company. Twenty-two years later, family-owned business De Bondt, took over the Scheepjeswol name and gave it a new lease of life. As a result we once again have wonderful yarns from this famous Dutch brand.
