Quality Materials

Authentic Design Specialised for the European Climate

To make the best quality yurts we require the best materials.  Over the years we have established excellent relationships with our suppliers and have some of our materials specially made for us.


Chestnut poles yurt workshop yurtOur frames are normally made from renewable chestnut - the wood we consider to be the best choice for the job. We source this wood in Northern Spain, from mountain forest farms where the trees have been grown for hundreds of years.

The best material for our solid crowns is oak; with ultra-high resistance to the elements it provides a secure foundation for a long last yurt frame.


One of the most important aspects of a yurt is the canvas cover - this is what keeps the yurt dry and allows moisture out (breathing).  We have our canvas specially made to order.  We have the canvas proofed to a very high standard to ensure the canvas will not leak whatever the climate.  We go the extra mile with proofing so you can relax knowing you have the best proofed canvas available.
We use 400g/m2 cotton/polyester especially proofed to our exacting standards.   
  • Breathable
  • Very strong but light and quick drying
  • Fire and rot resistant
  • Water resistant to 600mm head

Felt Insulation

100% wool felt The best way to insulate your yurt is with pure new wool felt. We have ours specially produced in Austria and is the best felt for the job.
  • 100% Pure New Wool
  • 100% Natural
  • Fire resistant (with Euro certificate)
  • 10mm thick
  • 900g/m2
  • Highly Insulating


We like our yurts to be very strong and therefore we have the the metal parts made by the local blacksmith. The iron rings either side of the door, the door handle, hinges and flue supports are all made to measure by hand.

Yurt Workshop Customer Comments

Kathy from Barcelona, Spain, 2005:

..thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - The yurt looks amazing and is beautifully made, "maker of fine yurts" is certainly an appropriate title. It is beautiful and warm, even in sub zero temperatures.
