Twist a Twill is a design by Tina Ratzer. Twist a Twill was designed in 2008.
Twist a Twill is made from 100% worsted wool. The design collaboration with Tina Ratzer was the project that started our interest in creating collaborations with designers.
All Twist a Twill throws are the same design, which is made in many different colors. The throw is made by a white warp (the warp is the threads which are vertical in the throw) and a colored weft (the threads which are horizontal in the throw). The mix of a white warp and a colored weft creates a lighter living expression in the design. With the slanted lines of twill weave as its base, the pattern plays with geometric shapes broken, twisted and turned, parted and joined into new expressions.
This design is beautiful and simple. Twist a Twill’s pattern makes peace in our mind, while emphasizing the personality of each home the throw is brought to.

Wool is a unique natural material. Wool insulates. It can keep you both cool and warm thanks to the fibers’ special structure, which is able to trap lots of air. It is the air in the textile that provides insulation, and a thin woolen plaid is therefore much warmer than a thicker one made of cotton, for example.
At Silkeborg Uldspinderi our focus begins on the raw wool so that we are always able to ensure that we can attain the desired quality that is then processed and transformed into plaids and cushions of a quality that will last for many years.
