About Us

 

Yeoman Yarns was founded by textile professional Tony Brook, in 1984.

 

 

Today we continue to operate as an independent small business that specialises in supplying hand-knitting, machine-knitting and crochet yarns that are both a pleasure to knit with and to wear.

Over the last 34 years we have become renowned as one of Europe’s leading suppliers to home knitters and designer knitwear businesses worldwide supported by a commitment to providing excellent customer service. However big or small your project we’re here to help!

Also our Trade business supplies industrial yarns throughout Europe direct to companies manufacturing for fashion retailers from online retailers to high street chains through to small boutiques. Because we are suppliers to the manufacturing industry, this means that you get the benefits of us having the inside-track on the latest design and colour trends.

As exclusive partners to some of the finest spinners across the world we are proud to be able to offer you a wide collection of high quality, unique yarns in a diverse range of plies. Our range includes not only timeless heritage yarns but also the latest products available in the market and most importantly we commit to bringing you the widest choice of colours. After all ....

 

And last but not least, we love to hear from our customers, so please feel free to call us at any time if you have anything you’d like to discuss. 

Just ask for Jackie, Gill, Chloe, Glen or Tony and they’ll be happy to help!
