The loden was made by us in cooperation with Elbwolle from the new wool of sheep from our immediate vicinity.

The wool comes from an organic farm that has imposed strict rules on itself through the kbt regulation. You might be wondering why it doesn't say "mulesing free" here? Mulesation is only an issue for Merino sheep in certain climate regions of the world. Fortunately, sheep living in Germany are never subjected to mulesing.

For those who are interested, below is a more detailed description of the Danish Pur Elbloden project.

Tip: For pure babywearing clothing we recommend our cloudy-soft wool fleece . Wool fleece keeps you warm and soft, but is not rainproof or suitable for toddlers crawling on the dirt road. For those who find the Elbloden too rough, we recommend our wonderfully soft and durable cuddly walk.

    combination and cuffs

    The cuddly boiled fabrics from our range are suitable as a combination.

    The loden itself is quite warm and dense (even if it is very thin in terms of volume due to the strong flexing). If lining is desired, this can be done with wool jersey, wool terry or wool fleece. The wool fleece lining is probably the warmest of these combinations and will also keep you warm as snow pants, for example.

    If a special cuff fabric is desired, we recommend the heavy rib in the tube for a good hold.

    We recommend the color "almond" as thread color.

    design samples

    We are also happy to show some design examples in the photos that were made available to us by enthusiastic customers. Thank you again for that!

    The mud trousers are combined with thunderstorm sky walk. It was sewn according to the Pfiffikus pattern.

    The children's jacket was lined with Mauvecino wool jersey. The pattern is a mix of the Lybstes Lyblings coat and the Bella pointed jacket.

    The teenager's jacket is the "early bloomer" from Lotte & Ludwig. Elbloden with golden piping on the outside (made of golden wool cuffs) and petrol wool jersey on the inside

    weight and width

    At 450g/^2, the loden is comparatively dense and quite heavy. However, it is felted so tightly that it is still pleasantly thin and can therefore also be easily processed with simple sewing machines. Nevertheless, it keeps you very warm (in terms of warmth and impermeability, it is not comparable to conventional milled qualities in the trade with 250g or similar).


    many small air chambers form a natural buffer against cold and heat, the skin can breathe freely, temperature balancing (releases excess heat to the environment), pure new wool absorbs up to a third of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp, does not become loaded electrostatically, hardly attracts dirt and odors And another "plus" for the environment: wool is biodegradable!

    sewing instructions

    Most of you mainly sew with stretchy fabrics, so here are a few brief notes on woven fabrics in general and loden in particular.

    The loden can fray. A trimming of the cut edges is therefore recommended. There is also a thread run with woven goods and especially with loden. Small pattern parts such as bags or belts can be cut against the grain without any problems - with larger parts there is a risk that the garment will unhinge unevenly! Here's a good article on that.

    Loden is best sewn with a sewing machine. For areas that are particularly stressed, such as an inseam, we recommend a triple straight stitch or - especially nice - a felled seam.

    Walkloden is very easy to sew and cut and is therefore also a particularly rewarding fabric for sewing beginners.

    Care of the loden

    Since the surface of the wool fiber repels dirt, hanging it up in the fresh air is usually sufficient. In the case of mud stains or other coarse dirt, brushing out with the miracle brush often helps.

    However, if washing is necessary, we recommend hand washing at max. 30°C with a special wool detergent. Make sure that there are no sharp changes in temperature and that the garment is not moved or rubbed too much. Taboo are: Drying in the sun, on the heater, in the dryer. If you wash in the washing machine, please only use the cold wool wash program. The walk can shrink by around 5-10% in the wash.

    It is optimal if the woolen clothing is simply aired out in damp weather (e.g. in the bathroom when showering). The water vapor that meets the fabric then automatically transports away smaller dirt particles and bad odours.

    If the clothes are heavily soiled, they can be washed by hand or on the cold wool cycle of the washing machine with wool detergent. In winter we recommend washing in the cold and not 30% wool wash cycle, otherwise the difference between 30 degrees and cold rinsing water in the washing machine may be too great. Wool does not like strong temperature fluctuations.

    Since wool fibers are more sensitive when wet than when dry, it is recommended that woolen clothing be dried lying flat on a towel.

    A lot of dirt can also be removed by tapping or brushing (e.g. with the miracle brush available in the shop).

    When walking, an extra fat treatment with lanolin can also help to make it tighter.

    If the boiled wool is also to be washed afterwards, we recommend a pre-wash in the wool washing program. Depending on the temperature fluctuation in the washing machine, around 5-10% can shrink.

    • Emergence of the Elbloden at Danisch Pur

      For two years now (planning started at the end of 2019) I would like to offer my own loden made from new wool from Lower Saxony. As you may know, soft, mulesing-free merino wool is very popular. But hardly anyone wants local wool. The local wool also has advantages. Yes, it is not as fluffy and soft as merino wool from South America, for example, because the sheep here - which are mostly used to maintain dykes - need it to be cozy and warm and, above all, need resistance to rain and wind. They are therefore perfectly equipped against what we also want to arm ourselves against in the cold season. However, the wool from the shearing is sold - if at all - for an apple and an egg. Hardly anyone can use the new wool and "brown" wool in particular is extremely unpopular. Why "brown" in quotation marks? The shepherds sort according to "white" and "brown" because wool buyers pay more for the pure white wool. Our new favorite shepherds from the Elbe river landscape biosphere reserve south-east of Hamburg are now sorted by "lamb", "white", "black", "brown", "curls/belly wool" and "can go/fertilizer". Whereby "brown" is anything that doesn't fit into the other categories, such as spotted sheep; Sheep that were once black, but whose wool fades to brown more quickly with age, or white sheep that have black guard hair. So there is a colorful mix that looks different every year, depending on who sorted. And it is very difficult to estimate in advance what the mixture will look like later. This is actually the wool that nobody else wants because you can't overdye it so well. But I find it particularly beautiful. Why should I take local natural wool and then overdye it brightly? Pure white, on the other hand, doesn't suit me either, because I'm looking for something robust. Something that you can use for children's mud pants and great jackets. This is how a gray-brown mottled loden was created in cooperation with Elbwolle. They call it backpack loden because the loden is so heavily milled and treated that even wool has become incredibly abrasion-resistant. My test seamstresses were totally amazed at how thin the fabric actually is and how heavy at the same time. There is an incredible amount of material per square centimeter in the fabric, which makes it very stable and windproof, but at the same time easy to sew because it is not many centimeters thick. The wool is of course kbt. The shepherd not only pays attention to kbt, but has imposed extra rules of conduct on himself. For example, he pays particular attention to the clipping being extra gentle. Every clipper has to take a breathalyzer test every day to make sure they can grab their hands well and carefully. If you do it right, shearing a sheep is really relaxing, almost like a wellness treatment. I was at a shearing event myself and was amazed at how calm and relaxed the sheep hung there when they were treated properly. Now you might be wondering what kind of breed it is? It's a mixed bag here too. Ute von Elbwolle affectionately calls it "the common dike sheep". In the picture with the lambs you can see sheep from which exactly this loden was made. In this shepherd they are not bred for purity, but for their usefulness and there is - as with the wool - a colorful mixture. The wool itself is not expensive. However, the loden is still quite expensive, as there are a few extra steps in the processing. The laundries, in particular, charge extra for small quantities (which we just turn over) and especially for wool of this type, since they have to clean the entire washing system afterwards. Because if a large amount of merino wool arrives afterwards, it would thank you if fibers from North German Deichschaf suddenly hide in it. Therefore, the washing costs alone are easily 5 times what large suppliers have to pay for their wool laundry. We also have to find extra weavers for weaving who can and want to handle this type of wool, and so one thing leads to another, so that the price of the wool is actually of secondary importance afterwards. But still offers the shepherds a good additional income. Win-win for everyone.

    Thin, warm

    A great fabric for winter clothing

    Thin and rough

    Very thin for the high basis weight, looks robust and after washing it is quite rough when you stroke it.

    Totally thin but heavy

    Beautiful and elegant, timeless color. The feel is great, very handy. The fabric is very thin, but very heavy.

    Smooth, heavy and great color

    I am enthusiastic about the feel of the fabric, it is (compared to the loden I know from other manufacturers) very smooth and thin, but quite heavy, I have to sew it first, but it looks very dense. I like the color very much. It's supposed to be a pull-over outdoor pant for myself

    Wow! Great stuff

    A great fabric. Relatively thin, but brings a certain heaviness. The pants are a dream of it.
