Garnsurr is a social integration project for refugee women. Enabling women through learning the language and the wonderful creative art of hand dyeing.
Garnsurr is a social integration project for refugee women in Norway. The project is aimed at women, because women often find themselves struggling to find jobs feeling isolated because the opportunities to learn the Norwegain language are quite limited. Through working at Garnsurr these women learn Norwegian at the same time as feeling productive and creative managing a working life - which again contributes to their integration into the Norwegian culture and society.

Their colours range from dark, rich and earthy to lighter vibrant tones, the women's own cultural heritage often result in surprising combinations but always with a beautiful result. Lint Gån is a luxurious 4ply weight yarn with a soft hand created by the Alpaca, an incredible sheen given the silk and a crisp stitch definition by the linen. This stunning fibre composition takes the dyes beautifully to really show of the colours but also the textures and constructions of your garment.
