All knits from S. N. S. HERNING are knitted in Herning, Denmark.
Currently, we only have 4 people knitting our entire production of knitwear.
This is possible, because we have very skilled knitters - as a collective they have more than 125 years of experience.
The most experienced knitter is Holger H. Skyt, son of our founder - he has been knitting for more than 50 years, and is still going strong.
His field of expertise is making our old machinery keep running. He is not philosophizing with a hammer, rather mending machines with a screwdriver.
Moreover, he is a living library of memories about great knits from our past, a continuous source of knowledge and inspiration when preparing new collections.
We have an almost religious sentiment towards our oldest machines.
Some of them are dating back to the 1950'es - one of them even to mid 1930'es.
One could argue that it is not worthwhile using them in that they are admittedly not as efficient as newer machines.
Also, they will probably tend to break down a bit more often, and they are most certainly way more complicated to work with.
But the old machines have something going for them: they are built to last - and they can handle a lot of yarn-ends, making it possible to squeeze more solidity into the fabrics.
And then they make such a beautiful noise when working at full speed.
