BC Garn was established in 1972 as a family company by Bo Carstensen who must have absorbed his passion for yarns from when he was very little, because his mother was a weaver and his father was a rug wool trader. Bo's mother had already started having her own yarns produced as she could not source the kinds of yarns and colours she needed for her projects.
In spring 2018 Bo and Marianna retired and handed over their "baby" to Britta and Carsten Kremke. What a coincidence that their first names suited the company name so well that they could keep the brand name BC Garn! Britta has been knitting since she was 8 years old (in her mother's yarn store) and at the age of 21 she was Germany's youngest yarn store owner. Carsten has a degree in business engineering and works as a marketing consultant. A great symbiosis to foster and further develop the brand in the spirit of the original founders.
Today BC Garn produces beautiful hand and machine knitting, crochet and weaving yarns exclusively from natural fibre bases, many of which are produced in line with eco standards and some with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification. Each BC Garn yarn line features a wide range of colours.
