Originally, Ingrid's made and sold hand-made wooden looms branded as 'Haas Looms'. Later, they began weaving wool and mohair products. At some point, they stopped making looms and focused strictly on processing fiber and weaving rugs. In 2009 the focus was shifted from wool/mohair to alpaca, llama, and buffalo fiber. We still process these and some other natural fibers today; making rugs, placemats, floor and table runners, wall hangings, and saddle pads.
We have customers from all over the United States and a few in Canada. And as far as we can tell, we are the only business in the U.S. that creates an all-natural jute core spun yarn and produces a hand woven finished product.
