We are Blacker Yarns, a British yarn brand specialising in breed-specific wool products. Our British wool yarns are all spun in our mill in Cornwall. We produce a large variety of different bases in beautiful and contemporary colour palettes. Our pure wool knitting yarns and crochet yarns are available in different weights including Double Knitting, Aran & Chunky, Lace & 3ply and 4ply amongst others and you will find a wide selection from every day classics providing great value for money to rare and luxury varieties.
We’re delighted to be able to offer you the very finest UK wool yarns to enhance your knitting and crocheting experience. We do this by sourcing fibre from British farmers and other businesses, as locally as we possible can. We are passionate about working with and creating quality products that are made to last, knowing that the farmers have taken the utmost care of their animals, and enabling us to make the best knitting and crochet yarns possible, to give our customers the opportunity to use 100% natural and unique types of wool.
Blacker Yarns and Blacker Designs were launched in 2008 as sister brands of The Natural Fibre Company, our specialist UK knitting wool supplier and mill based in Launceston on the Cornwall-Devon border. NFC spins all the natural wool yarns we use for the Blacker brand of best knitting wool and crochet yarns, made exclusively from the fleece of British sheep.
Our various ranges of UK knitting and crochet wool yarns cover everything from every-day classic good value, through interesting and rare, to very special luxury yarns.
You can journey through our ranges to find the right yarn for every project, whether simple or complicated, easy or difficult, large or small, and we think you will find that they are beautiful, durable crochet and knitting wool yarns, which will make unique and long-lasting gifts, accessories or garments.
Our patterns are specially designed to compliment our range of yarns for knitting or crocheting. We have a selection of knit and crochet patterns for everyone, from cosy jumpers to stunning shawls.
Our beautiful knitting wool kits will arrive, beautifully presented in one of our environmentally friendly project bags or boxes, along with the correct amount of knitting or crochet yarn and a copy of your chosen pattern. These kits are perfect treats for yourself or to give as a gift at Christmas or anytime of year for someone who loves to knit or crochet.
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.
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!
Thank you for the Blacker Swan Balsom Bog 4-ply. It is lovely wool to work with! November 2023
“I wanted you to have a finished product for your efforts! It’s super soft with a nice stitch definition” – (The Lost Flock, special limited edition yarn October, 2023).
I recently purchased the Hartland Cliffs Shawl Project Kit from you and thought you might be interested to know that I loved knitting it! Thank you for a great kit.
Thought you might like to see a picture of my completed project using your Blacker swan 4-ply Falkland merino wool. The wool was beautiful to knit with.
Thank you for bringing us such unique and pure British wool blends!
Many thanks as always.
Hi Kamila, Thanks very much for your reply, it’s such a lovely colour. I have knit with the yarn before.
Hi Kamila, Thank you very much for everything. The wool just arrived 🙂
I love this Blacker Yarn, after using it a couple of times, I think it is the nicest soft DK I have ever knit with, and what wonderful service from the Royal Mail and Canada Post.
😊 Thank you so much, my dear St. Kilda Angel ❤
Thanks guys, my order has arrived safely – Can’t wait to start my second Maiden.
