A family business established in 1928, Novita Oy is the largest manufacturer of yarns in the Nordic countries. The company’s spinning mill in Kouvola, Finland manufactures one million kilograms, or 10 million balls of yarn, per year.


Novita’s story began nearly 90 years ago when Ernst Gylfe, its founder, set out to fulfil his dream of providing Finns with knitting yarns of finer quality than ever before.


Our vision is to be an innovative, responsible and internationally respected producer of handknitting yarns, known for our unique designs and an inspirational community. Our core values guide us and inspire us every day.


Novita’s operations are based on shared values and goals, with a happy customer always at the heart of everything we do.

Established in 1928, Novita is in the fourth generation of family management. Novita has been spinning yarn for 90 years. Wool is a natural material known since time immemorial and has changed very little over time. The Novita team handles the entire production process, from raw wool to the final ball. Novita is growing and expanding into international markets and operates the largest spinning mill in Kouvola, Finland.
