In 1975, while studying to become a mechanical engineer, Richard Wernekinck first started to sell wool. The wool came from the sheep that lived in the orchard of his parent's farm. "I put the clean and assorted wool in bags made of jute. Demands were high as natural products gained in popularity at the time." Soon it became clear that there was more to it than just selling bags of wool and Richard Wernekinck started his wholesale.


In 2013 wholesale Richard Wernekinck changed its name to HOLLANDFELT & HOLLANDWOOL. With customers in over 40 countries this wholesale has grown to become a successful international enterprise that still operates from its headquarters in Delft, the Netherlands.
