The registered trademark S. N. S. HERNING was founded in 1931 by Søren Nielsen Skyt (1899- 1972) in Herning, Denmark. As a young man, he made a living by selling knitted garments of his own making. In the mid1920'es, 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 years have passed since the release of our ﬁrst FISHERMAN sweater. Even if the production has had its highs and lows, we never stopped knitting it. And to this day, the FISHERMAN sweater remains at the core of our entire production of knit-wear.
More knits have naturally been added to our repertoire over time - but they all relate more or less directly to our original knit in terms of functionality, aesthetic, underlying technique, texturing, or simply that hard to describe feel.
All knits can be thought of as members of a family - sharing the same forefather.
