Rauma Wool Factory and Rauma Collection
Rauma Wool Factory is a textile company that was established in 1927.

Rauma Wool Factory is the main possessor of the brands Rauma Garn (knitting yarn), RørosTweed (interior textiles) and Rauma Collection (knitted garments).

With authentic patterns and colours, these are timeless classics that will never go out of style.
Norwegians have a long and proud tradition of breeding sheep, to harvest their wool and to handle it as a valuable resource. Norwegian sheep roam freely in mountains, forests, and hills during the grazing seasons. They drink the purest water and eat the most nutritious food nature can offer. Norwegian sheep are truly powered by nature, how they live the good life and feed on healthy natural grass creates strong animals with wool of exceptional durability, resilience, and radiance.
100% Norwegian Wool
Nothing is like Norwegian wool. We humans have never created something as amazing as this natural material. It is unbeatable when it comes to insulation and breathability properties, and is also temperature-regulating, moisture-absorbing, and odour resistant. Wool is a wonderful resource and has been used by Norwegians since the dawn of time. Wool keeps you warm when it’s cold in winter and cools you down if it’s too hot in summer. It is a practical and versatile material well suited for Nordic conditions, where temperature and weather conditions can change quickly. Whether you are hiking up the mountains or hitting the slopes, wool will transport moisture away from the body and keep you dry and protected, even in high activity. Norwegian wool is also known for being sustainable, durable, and practical, and is the perfect garment to wear throughout the year.
The fact that Rauma uses 100% Norwegian wool in their entire collection, validates how incredibly high quality their products sustain.
Norwegian Wool – sustainable and magical!
As a natural fabric, wool is the best choice if you want a sustainable material for your textiles, everything from clothing to blankets. Norwegian wool is produced locally, and is a product of good animal welfare, which makes it very sustainable. Rauma is one of few textile companies with their entire production process in Norway, which means they contribute to reducing the use of resources, environmental damage, and climate gas emissions. Wool clothes and knitwear are both sustainable and magical!
In a cold country like Norway, warm clothing is essential. The traditional sweater is a fundamental item in any Norwegian wardrobe thanks to the unique properties of Norwegian wool. Anywhere you go, you will find Norwegians wearing woolen sweaters, with traditional designs, or multi-coloured with stylish patterns.
The Norwegian sweater has also made a name for itself internationally, and you can find the designs in many international fashion magazines. In addition to the eye-catching patterns, the sweaters’ high level of comfort and pleasant warmth makes modern fashionistas reach for the iconic threads.
If you desire a trendy sweater made of 100% Norwegian wool, Rauma has the perfect mix of traditional and modern designs. They are the only knitwear company with exclusive rights to produce the original Marius sweater. They develop new variations like no other company, which you can see in one of their best-selling products, the traditional Marius sweater.
The Marius Sweater
The Marius sweater is a popular addition to the Rauma Collection, and few things are more typically Norwegian. The beloved sweater is inspired by traditional patterns and designed with the colours of the Norwegian flag red, white and navy. Although Norwegian sweaters have been knitted for hundreds of years, the Marius sweater is a relatively modern phenomenon, dated back to the 1950s.
The sweater’s name originates from the war hero, Marius Eriksen, who was also a famous skier, a model, and an actor. He wore the Marius sweater in his first film, and it generated knitting hysteria in Norway. Everybody started knitting the iconic sweater, and you could see the popular Marius pattern on everyone, from the hard-working fisherman to the snobby housewife. Henceforth, the Marius sweater was officially regarded as an icon of Norway, that keeps Norwegians warm and protected.
An Icon of Norway
The Marius sweater is a true Norwegian symbol and is one of the world’s best-selling and copied knitting patterns. It has a strong cultural value and an iconic status, it is worn by everyone, even the Norwegian King. It is precisely the sweater’s national and traditional touch that constantly brings it back into the fashion scene. It has become a heritage piece that is passed down through generations.
The Marius knitting pattern’s popularity is truly international, with millions of units of both the pattern and the sweater being sold each year, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down. Recently there has been a fashion hype around Norwegian wool and traditional Norwegian patterns. It even has the attention of luxurious fashion houses, and you could see inspiration from the Marius pattern walking down the runway of Dolce & Gabbana.
