The well-known Schachenmayr brand is characterized by a long and successful history.
Yarns were manufactured as early as 1817 by Johann Gottfried Kolb in a cluster of historic
spinning mills, located on the river Fils near Salach, Germany. Shortly after production
began, a cotton mill was added which was later converted into a wool spinning mill in 1822.
To this day, this facility continues to be the hub for the development and marketing of all
Schachenmayr knitting yarns.
In 1824, Leonhardt Schachenmayr joined the aspiring company after he married Kolb’s
eldest daughter. His focus on innovative yarn technologies and high quality production
standards shaped the company and led to the development of one of the first yarn brands
in Europe during the Industrial Revolution. The company’s name was changed to
Schachenmayr, Mann & Cie.
The Schachenmayr brand reflects the historical foundation of the company, yet continues
to be forward thinking in product and design development. Today, the Schachenmayr
brand is one of the leading producers and suppliers of knitting yarns. Held in high esteem
by knitters all over the world, the Schachenmayr brand stands for quality, creative design
and the celebration of the joy of knitting.
