Yarns by Breed

We attract customers from all over the world who enjoy our range of breed specific crochet and knitting wool yarns. Since our early days we have been tracking down individual British breeds – mostly from farms in the UK along with our special links to producers based in the Falklands. Some of these breeds are scarce, others are more common and could be found just a few miles away from your home or business.  All of these yarns are wonderfully unique and make for some of the best crochet yarn or knitting wool you can buy.

100% Natural Fibre Yarn

100% Natural Fibres

Our yarn is made out of 100% pure and natural fibres - wool, alpaca, linen and mohair.

Made by us in Cornwall

All of our yarns are made in our own mill in Cornwall, where we scour, spin and finish all yarns.

Your yarns are insanely gorgeous and I am stuffed to the gills with yarn and I deliberated all day, but made room for one more project because this yarn is too hard to pass up!
