About Us

It all started in 1997 when Lana Hames attended Stitches West for the first time. She knew she had found 'her people'. Lana returned home inspired to somehow make hemp textiles a business.  It took 3 years of planning, designing and research. In 2000 Lanaknits Designs hemp for knitting was launched!

Our head office and design studio is located in downtown Nelson BC. We have grown year after year as knitters and designers discover our great yarns! Our yarns and designs can be found in knitting shops throughout North America and in several international locations.
