The village of Dale is nestled between beautiful steep mountains, waterfalls and fjords on the west coast of Norway. In 1879, the historic textile factory was established in this valley with easy access to wool, strong knitting traditions, and a great supply of natural power from the local waterfalls. Since then, Dale of Norway has developed stunning designs in premium qualities that are well-known worldwide.
Our superwash merino is one of the finest wools available. The fibre come from the merino sheep that can only be found in the worldwide warmer climates. Merino has very fine and long stable fibres giving it the very smooth next-to-skin comfort. All of our Merino is sourced from certified suppliers that meet the strictest standards; animal friendly and superior quality.
Through research and development, Dale of Norway was able to come up with the Knitshell (TM) concept, a wool fabric that is windproof, breathable and water repellent. It is a 3-layer fabric consisting of a water repellent knit, 100% wool knit fabric that is fused with a breathable windproof membrane and a soft inner liner, creating an amazing fabric with technical properties. This is proprietary to Dale of Norway and we use it exclusively in our outerwear collection.
Despite the technological development of synthetic fibers, no man-made fibers can match the natural, high performance properties of wool. It has superior insulation and breathability, it regulates body temperature, absorbs and wicks moisture, it is warm even when wet or damp, is naturally odor resistant, elastic, non-static and maintains its shape – and best of all, it is a 100% natural and sustainable fiber.
Due to the cold winters, Norway has a long tradition of wool and knitwear. The beautiful traditional patterns have mostly been inspired by nature or history. Over the past 130 years, Dale of Norway has developed its own famous designs, and redesigned age-old Norwegian patterns. Dale effectively turns patterns into garments for fashion and sport with an authentic story.
