S.N.S. Herning

The registered trademark S. N. S. HERNING was founded in 1931 by Søren Nielsen Skyt (1899- 1972) in Herning, Denmark. In the mid 1920's, he learned about a technique of knitting with "bobble" patterns that increased the insulating abilities of garments. All FISHERMAN sweaters are still being knitted at the knitting factory in Herning - after the same recipe as that of Søren Nielsen Skyt - with strict rules for the layout of the bobble pattern, the cut, the measurements, and the finishing etc. More knits have naturally been added to their repertoire over time - but they all relate more or less directly to the original knit in terms of functionality, aesthetic, underlying technique, texturing, or simply that hard to describe feel.
