S.N.S. Herning

The registered trademark S. N. S. HERNING was founded in 1931 by Søren Nielsen Skyt (1899-1972) in Herning, Denmark.

All knits from S. N. S. HERNING are knitted in Herning, Denmark. Currently, there only have 4 people knitting the entire production of knitwear. As a collective they have more than 125 years of experience. The most experienced knitter is Holger H. Skyt, son of the founder - he has been knitting for more than 50 years, and is still going strong.

As a young man, he made a living by selling knitted garments of his own making. In the mid 1920's, he learned about a technique of knitting with "bobble" patterns that increased the insulating abilities of garments. Relying on these techniques, he began manufacturing the so-called FISHERMAN sweater, which was intended to protect its wearer from the rough weather at sea, and to be robust enough to withstand the wear and tear from the hard work.

Eighty five years have passed since the release of the first FISHERMAN sweater. Even if the production has had its highs and lows, we never stopped knitting it.
