Our traditional heritage

Our yarn collections are designed, coloured and stocked in the UK.

Our philosophy

We work closely with our designer, based in the Scottish Borders, who is dedicated to colour, yarn and fabric development.

This allows us to keep pace with changing fashion needs and to constantly develop new yarn blends, colours and textures in conjunction with fabric development and design applications.

The only true Donegal yarn

We are the exclusive exporters of the only true Donegal yarn on the market, produced by Donegal Yarns Limited in Ireland.
