About five years ago, four tech entrepreneurs spotted a huge interest in yarn; they started to supply yarn and inspiration to knitting and crocheting enthusiasts around the world, and we haven’t looked back since. Today we have grown to become the fastest growing company in Denmark thanks to all our amazing colleagues and happy customers. Last year we shipped +1 million parcels from our warehouse in Greve. Behind the scenes we’re a team of 350 Hobsters enjoying the crazy growth journey we are on.
