Visit the idyllic craft farm Aagaard in Sydthy. Rediscover the ancient crafts, see and buy wool yarn from sheep in Thy National Park.
Aagaard is a craft farm and has a shop with yarn, textiles and local design. Aagaard conveys the ancestral craft and organises courses and workshops. In the summer of 2020, Aagaard will host a series of events under the theme 'Wool! Wool! Wool!'.
Aagaard is a 220 year old and rare, preserved old farm, restored with respect for old building style and local customs. Around the buildings there are beautiful green outdoor areas, a lovely old garden, big old trees and a small river. Aagaard has for many years been family owned by Else Høgh and her daughters. Now young “Thyboer” have joined forces and are continuing Aagaard into a mecca for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in crafts and be creatively challenged.
