Andy Wolf and Lana Grossa launch a charity project.

November 3 2022

Austrian eyewear manufacturer Andy Wolf and German hand knitting specialist Lana Grossa launch a joint collection of 6 limited edition eyewear pieces and a DIY knitting kit, the net proceeds of which will be donated to the Styrian children's hospice Sterntalerhof

The inspiration for the Andy Wolf x Lana Grossa eyewear and knitwear is as simple as it is surprising: stripes, stripes and more stripes. The concept runs like a thread through each pair of glasses and each knitted piece. Each of the six frames has an inner ring, its own striping, so to speak, a splash of color that gives the glasses a completely new look. The striped look in matching color yarn "Cool Wool", continues on the knitted pieces and challenges: each of the pieces is waiting to be knitted or crocheted. The 8 piece DIY wool set can produce a hip balaclava, hat scarf ensemble, glasses case, and for less experienced knitters, 'knittedlieselt' a glasses band. With this, the wool wraps the glasses and the customers around the finger. A knitting needle, crochet hook and knitting dolly are already included in the set for many cozy knitting moments with Andy Wolf x Lana Grossa.

The glasses are available from this month at selected opticians worldwide, in the online store www.andywolfstore.com and through selected Lana Grossa. retailers. The DIY knitting set includes 8 balls of wool, knitting & crochet needles, a knitting dolly and 
matching instructions.
