Grateful Dead

Getting To Know... Granted Sweater Company

We're always happy to bring new folks into the Grateful Dead family fold especially when they are as talented as the Granted Sweater Company. Established in 1978 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, Granted uses traditional knitting methods and domestic wool yarn to create timeless designs. The results are rich in craftsmanship, long-lasting, hand-made, and sustainable - perfect complements to the Dead's iconic artwork.

From wool to yarn to bears and bolts, take a trip through Granted's factory and into their homes below.

Pre-order Granted's exclusive Grateful Dead sweaters here.


Free-roaming ethically treated sheep. Sheep are unharmed during the shearing process.



Raw stock scouring. Wool is washed to remove dirt, oil and feed.



Skein drying.



Yarn is spun and ready to be knit with.



Yarn is weighed and picked up by a knitter who knits from the comfort of their own home.



Each stitch is cafefully knit by hand. A sweater can take up to 20-25 hours of knitting.



In the Granted studio, each zipper pull, made from Canadian wood, is branded with a "g" logo.
