BC Garn was founded in 1972 as a family business. BC stands for Bo Carstensen, who manages the company together with his wife Marianna, who joined the company a little later. Bos' mother was a weaver and because she could not find the yarns and colours on the market that she needed for her work, she began to develop and have yarns produced herself. Today BC Garn develops a wide variety of hand and machine knitting yarns, always from the highest quality raw materials and in most cases even produced according to Öko Tex or GOTS guidelines.
