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.

Tresko is a soft, durable utility yarn reinforced with nylon. This makes it ideal for socks and slippers that need to withstand a bit of wear and tear. A pattern for stockings is printed on the inside of the banderol. Tresko is a woollen yarn, and the wool is 100% Norwegian. Everything from the washing of the wool to the winding of the yarn is done at our factory at Foss Eikeland in Sandnes.

Garments made of Norwegian wool are light, warm and grow softer every time you wear them. Norwegian wool is durable and pill-resistant, and its superior resilience ensures that garments keep their shape over time.  Be kind to the environment! Wool is breathable and rarely needs washing. Instead, we recommend airing your wool garments. Garments made of Norwegian wool have a long lifespan and can remain just as beautiful for several generations. As a result, Norwegian wool can contribute to more sustainable consumption. Woollen yarn is well-suited to felting.

For machine wash, we recommend you to wash your wool garments separately in order to avoid felting. Put the wool garment on a gentle wool cycle; followed by a rinse cycle to remove excess water, if necessary.

Dry Flat and never hand on a washing line.
