Originally, Isager Jensen Yarn was named ÅLJ after knitwear designer Åse Lund Jensen. In the 1960s, Åse Lund Jensen sold handknitted sweaters, she knitted in a heavy Swedish yarn. The heavy weight of the finished garments made shipping costs outside Denmark much too expensive, and this led to a new cooperation between Åse Lund Jensen and the Danish spinning mill, Henrichsens Uldspinderi in Skive. Together, they developed a lighter 3-ply yarn, ÅLJ and introduced it in a new natural colour range which Isager is still the base for our Jensen Yarn, Spinni and Tvinni.

The white wool origins from New Zealand, and the brown and grey wools used for the s-colours origin from Gotland sheep in Europe. The supplier in New Zealand is a brand partner of the Wool Integrity programme that ensures that the principals under this programme such as an animal welfare, environmental sustainability and traceability are met.
