Lana Grossa

Countries of origin

As a manufacturer of high-quality hand knitting yarns, animal welfare and sustainability are especially close to our heart. As a result, our yarns are not only GOTS certified – but we have also undergone inhouse testing to that standard and passed with flying colors! The LANA GROSSA certificate number is: 35827.

All our products since our newly released 2020 collections are guaranteed mulesing free. The raw materials for our wool are sourced from regions that due to their climate do not practice mulesing. Consequently, most of our merinos originate from South America.

There is a proportion of our collection where the country of origin for the raw materials is Australia. The material sourced there meets our unavoidably challenging requirements for both fiber fineness and structure. Suppliers from this region confirm that these extra-fine merino yarns are also guaranteed mulesing free.

Included in these wools, among others, are our Cool Wool, Cool Wool Big and Bingo yarns. In the mélange colors these are even GOTS certified!

We like to keep things transparent, which is why information on country of origin and production location of our yarns is available to all customers at any time. Here you will find an overview of the natural materials used in our yarns.

Our responsibility

We are particularly concerned about the environment and the conditions under which our products are manufactured. We work only with suppliers who are equally committed to complying with environmental guidelines and fair working conditions and who share our ethical values.

This applies to the raw materials we use as well as the production of our high-quality yarns. All LANA GROSSA yarns are produced in leading Italian spinning mills. All companies we partner with adhere to the efficient use of resources and to socially and environmentally compatible standards according to EU regulations as well as to Oeko-Tex standards, which are based on environmental management, chemicals and their use, quality management and health and occupational safety.

In addition, we use largely merino wool from South America, which meets the same quality standards as wool from New Zealand, or Australia and which per se is mulesing free due to the climatic conditions.

Of course also to the unified European Textile Labelling Act, which informs our customers and end users about the raw material content of our products. That is why we as a company do not have an alternative to raw materials from Italy. Not only because of the short transport routes to our central warehouse in Gaimersheim in the heart of Bavaria, which is certainly another advantage when it comes to logistical questions and quality control.

The same goes for the storage of goods. Our stock is housed in a modern high-bay warehouse. Optimum space utilization, efficient logistics and less transport damage to goods are the advantages as well as the monitoring by a warehouse management system, which documents all movements of goods and the current inventory before products are sent to our retail partners.

Yarns made in Italy

Why do we automatically associate the words “Made in Italy” with luxury and first-class quality?
What exactly is it that makes fashion from Italy and everything connected with it so special?
The secret lies in centuries-old craftsmanship, quality materials and a unique attitude to life that Italian wool and yarn suppliers successfully convey to their products.

Like to handmade crochet and knit designs that add a touch of “Dolce Vita” to every wardrobe. LANA GROSSA’s yarn and design collections are based on a sense of tradition with a flair for trends that is important to many customers.

Superb craftsmanship, high-quality yarns, ingenious colour palettes and a stylish look transform every creative design into a timeless, individual favourite piece – for decades to come.

The Piedmont and Tuscany regions are not only well-known for their food, but are also the cradle of traditional craftsmanship, especially the wool processing industry.

At LANA GROSSA we believe that sustainability is the result of high product quality and the associated product longevity. We strive to meet these requirements on a daily basis.
