Lana Grossa

About us


The company LANA GROSSA was founded in 1972 and has established itself as the leading supplier of top quality, high fashion hand knitting yarns. From its main distribution centre in Gaimers heim the company offers a range of products exclusively manufactured in Italy’s leading spinning mills, bringing together Italian flair and creative designs which meet the demands of the fashion knitting market.

LANA GROSSA is the market leader in Europe with 1200 clients in the specialist trade. Our products have been well established for many years in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Luxembourg.

Our broad product range is backed up by an extensive marketing support and a highly professional distribution system.

Product range

The core program of our company is divided into four sub-groups and thus covers the main segment of a qualified retail business. Our standard range offers classic yarns in Merino and wool with proven top quality.

Standard yarns at LANA GROSSA have long-term continuity in our product range and are avail-able in a wide variety of colours which are constantly updated to reflect seasonal trends. Sock yarn “Meilenweit” by LANA GROSSA offers a huge selection of self-patterning yarns and plays an important role in our product portfolio.

The group of fashionable classics is composed of current trend yarns, which are continued in the collection due to high demand over several seasons. Each collection by LANA GROSSA captivates with a wide range of fashionable novelty yarns. These determine future fashion trends in the hand knitting sector – both in terms of materials as well as colour spectrum.
