Our family business is located in the middle of the beautiful mountains of Lungau. The wool production Ferner was founded in 1906 by my great-grandfather Josef Ferner. When my grandfather Matthias Ferner returned home from Russian captivity in 1947, he continued the cluttering that only fleece produced. In 1954, the carding mill was expanded to include a spinning mill. Until the company was taken over in 1976 by my father Matthias Ferner senior, only the wool from local farms was processed. In 1977 my dad enlarged the company and concentrated on the sale of hand and machine knitting yarns.
