Asas Tomtebod was born from finding something to do with the left over wool and yarn and started making tomte, and sold them at a local fair. In 1993 Asas Tomtebod was born with a family workshop and trying to sell further than just locally in shows at Halmstad, Tällberg in Dalarna and in Gothenburg. Finally on 2000 they went to Formex fair and the world wide love of Tomte was born.
The sheep from the Swedish island of Gotland are unique. Using their curly grey wool along with warm water and soap, we create a felt that is then handshaped into caps and noses.
The sheepskin is turned into beards and hair. We also use sheepskin from Icelandic sheep, which have a long straight fleece in a variety of colors.

The grey cap is handmade felt from genuine Gotland Sheeps wool unique to Scandinavia, his body & nose is wood and his white beard if straight is made from Icelandic sheeps wool if curly or grey it’s made from Gotland sheeps wool.
