S.N.S. Herning was founded in 1919 by Søren Nielsen Skyt. Already from an early age, Søren’s income came from his own wool clothing production entirely. This kind of job was very common at that time. A drawing from 1923 shows that Søren was mainly creating men’s underwear, vests, socks, jumpers and tops – all made of warm wool. Søren’s bestseller was, however, the sailor knit, which is still in production today.
