"Ein Schal fürs Leben" - "A scarf for life"

For the tenth year in a row, Save the Children and BRIGITTE magazine are calling for donations with the “A Scarf for Life” campaign to give children strength and hope for their future.

Join our celebrity supporters and buy, knit and wear the Scarf for Life designed by fashion designer Guido Maria Kretschmer to set a sign against wars. Your donations help to give these children of war a perspective again.


“It’s almost a small tradition. Since 2016 I have been publishing a free sock pattern on my blog, just in time for October 1st, the so-called SOCKTOBER. This year, together with LANA GROSSA, I am combining two worthwhile campaigns, the proceeds of which will be used to fight cancer.”

50 cents per ball of yarn sold from this campaign will be collected by LANA GROSSA and then donated in equal parts to these two initiatives. Please support the campaign as well.

Every sock counts!

Sustainability and environmental awareness

At LANA GROSSA we live sustainability. Our yarn is made exclusively in leading Italian spinning mills and are certified in many areas.

Sustainability – where does it start and where does it end? Firstly, we need to rethink. No step is too small for our sustainability agenda. With measurably reduced emissions as a clear target, we are guided on our way… to learn and constantly improve. Sustainability means many things, we also aim to take care of our employees, we also strive for the same end goal with our business partners. Modern and flexible working conditions, fair wages and the engagement of passionate knitters.

As animal welfare is close to our hearts, our wool is guaranteed mulesing-free since 2020.

    h+h cologne 2023

    One look at the upcoming knitwear trends is all it takes – and we’ve already reconciled ourselves to the idea that every summer has an end. Best of all, color is here to stay. Rich hues like coral, fuchsia and yolk yellow deliver positive energy and look their strongest when combined in new and bold ways.

    Equally important: natural looks staged through rustic textures and irregular flame and bouclé yarns. Asymmetries play a role in the use of patterns and color blocking.
