Sandnes Garn

Sandnes Garn is a Norwegian yarn manufacturer established in 1888. This family owned business uses mostly Norwegian wool. 95 percent of the wool comes from Norwegian sheep. Merino wool's origin is in South America, where it is produced ethically without mulesing.

Besides producing high quality yarns, Sandnes Garn also publishes knitting patterns. Their most beloved pattern is the Marius sweater from the 1950s. It has become an icon. Most of the patterns can be found in several languages. 

Many Sandnes Garn yarns, like Lanett Babyull, have become a staple in the knitting community. Lanett Babyull is still a great choice for baby and other knits and continues to be many knitters' favourites. If you want really durable socks, try Sandnes Sisu. Sandnes Smart is machine washable, really durable wool yarn that is great for colorwork among other knits.  

Sandnes Garn has introduced new yarns, such as Børstet Alpakka, Kos, Tynn Line and Tynn Silk Mohair, showing that they follow knitting trends too.
