Town End Alpaca Yarns

From the Lake District, we produce the softest alpaca knitting yarns.  Pure, naturally coloured alpaca yarns are still at the heart of our range.  We also have an increasing choice of alpaca with silk and wools and dyed in beautiful colours.  

We buy alpaca fleeces from UK breeders.  Bluefaced Leicester and fine Shetland come directly from farmers in the Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire.  We take great care in skirting and grading the fleeces so that the yarns are exceptionally soft.   Our yarns are then spun and dyed for us in the UK.

Signature Needle Arts needles, crafted in the USA of aircraft quality aluminum in beautiful jewel tones, will inspire you to create projects as beautiful as our needles. Find us on Facebook.
