Items from wool
The farm
High up, at the end of the road, above the Holy Trinity Church (Hl. Dreifaltigkeitskirche) in Vellau near Algund, is a remote and picturesque farm set at around 1,000 metres above sea level - Hoferhof farm. If you are walking along the irrigation channel pathway in Lagundo, you will love to stop here to take a break and have a closer look. Amidst organic vegetables and 25 free range Tyrolean mountain sheep, that Johanna works on her ‘boden.kleid’ project and makes artworks of a really special nature.

The young farmer conjures up all sorts of pretty textile items using thread, scissors, crochet hooks and sheep’s wool from South Tyrol. “I get most of the wool from our own sheep. After they are shorn, I wash the wool in wheelbarrows and dry it right on our farm. After carding and processing, I use the rolled-up yarns for crocheting.” Johanna Aichner’s products have been very well received and she uses Instagram and Facebook to sell most of her goods. Hand-made items are especially popular with young people, she tells us.
