Only 10 minutes away from the TUI BLUE Schladming, it's both colourful and cosy! For more than 120 years, the Steiner1888 Wool World in Mandling has been producing internationally renowned materials. Who knows - even George Clooney may have snuggled up under one of their high-quality angora blankets. After all, the family-run factory supplies their materials to famous fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Yves St. Laurent, Gucci, Jil Sander, and Boss.
Between the intriguing factory tour, the option to relax in the charming café, and the possibility to buy one of the coveted pieces in the shop itself, the Steiner Wool World is an ideal excursion destination for guests of TUI BLUE. To begin the tour you will be brought up to speed with a 3D film and dive into the world of alpacas and cashmere goats. You can then marvel at more than 40 skillfully-executed stages that take the raw wool to the finished product. The centrepiece is the hammerhead, which is more than 120 years old.
Upon leaving Wool World, you'll better understand what goes into the elaborate process of weaving and fulling.
Tip: Steiner 1888 Wool World is located in Mandling, 11 kilometres from the TUI BLUE Schladming. It's in the same place as the Mandlberggut & Distillery, so you can combine multiple destinations in the same daytrip.
