  • Sandnes Garn today holds the position as the largest producer of hand knitting yarn in Northern Europe, one of the world’s most up-to date spinning mills – in one of the oldest factories still running.

    Sandnes Uldvarefabrik was founded in 1888, and a red brick building was erected in the very heart of Sandnes, Norway. The factory bore witness to the industrial revolution before it burned down in 1978 and was rebuilt in a valley outside of town. The ownerships and names have changed throughout the years, until they got today’s name which also reflects that it is no longer just wool that goes through their spinning mill and out into the world.
