Airedale Yarns source yarns from textile merchants, so are exclusive to us, and not brands you would see in high street yarn shops. We sell a wide selection of yarns on cones for weaving, macrame, rugmaking, rug-tufting and dyeing - many of which can also be knitted, crocheted and machine knitted.
The merchants we source the yarns from our often buying up run-ends, discontinued lines, bankrupt stock etc - so essentially "waste" that we are re-winding or getting twisted into new yarns - a perfect sustainable model.
Most of our yarns are spun from wool, cotton, linen and silk with both dyed and undyed options available, though we do also have acrylic blends for sheer practicality (and often as a vegan option).
Many textile trends such as macrame and rugtufting are brilliantly creative and mindful...but also grow quickly, so you get a sense of satisfaction really quickly. We have over 100 shades of rug wool plus a huge range of thicknesses and colours of macrame cord.
