High End Yarn Brands
About Malabrigo: "We are a family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru and we have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Our products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. This is what we try to represent when naming our 21 yarn varieties and the range of over 400 colors they come in. We produce yarn because we are passionate about it. We believe in the pleasure of knitting with high-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing what is created with them. Our wish is to continue developing yarns and colors to inspire people all over the world and, in return, be inspired by them."
About Rowan: "Rowan started life above a grocery store in a village near Huddersfield, in West Yorkshire, England. While initially specialising in weaving supplies and knitting kits, founders Stephen Sheard and Simon Cockin wanted to produce yarn which was both high quality and perfect for the hand-knitting design trends of the time. Their business focus was to showcase natural fibres in a paint-box colour palette, and so Lightweight DK was born with 98 shades. They placed the utmost value on providing yarn shades which could be translated into timeless design, and these values are still at the core of Rowan today."
This beautiful Trinity Knit Poncho Pattern from Rowan, though a knitting pattern, is too pretty for us not to include as it showcases the beautiful drape of this luxury yarn. Rowan is more known for their knitting patterns than crochet, but their yarn is exquisite for all fiber artists.
About the Company: "The company LANA GROSSA was founded in 1972 and has established itself as the leading supplier of top quality, high fashion hand knitting yarns. From its main distribution centre in Gaimers heim the company offers a range of products exclusively manufactured in Italy’s leading spinning mills, bringing together Italian flair and creative designs which meet the demands of the fashion knitting market. LANA GROSSA is the market leader in Europe with 1200 clients in the specialist trade. Our products have been well established for many years in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Luxembourg. Our broad product range is backed up by an extensive marketing support and a highly professional distribution system."
About the Company: "In 1968, the Wheelock family formed a new handknitting subsidiary. The family name STANLEY was combined with the first syllables from the last names of two sales agents - BER from Berglass and RO from Rosenberg - and CO for company, resulting in BERROCO. With that, the company (not the man) Stanley Berroco was born. In 1987, Stanley Berroco was reestablished by Warren Wheelock and his wife, Caroline, as Berroco, Inc. This new firm grew to become one of the largest importers and wholesalers of handknitting yarns, patterns and supplies in the United States and Canada. Its range of specialty yarns are imported from countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Romania, Brazil and Peru."
The Fibre Co.
From the Company: "The Fibre Co.’s story began in 2003 in an old warehouse on the working waterfront of Portland, Maine, USA with a small spinning mill, lots of raw natural fibre and owner/founder Daphne Marinopoulos’ vision of creating yarns that she couldn’t find on the retail shelves. From these humble beginnings to today’s global brand now based in the United Kingdom, we work with a variety of producers and artisans to continue creating yarns that delight and inspire the enthusiast maker. To hear the story in her own words, watch and listen as Daphne talks about fibres, dyeing and yarn development on some of the most popular video and audio podcasts."
About Shibui Knits: "On a visit to Tokyo’s Ginza market in 2004, Darcy Cameron picked up a handwoven bag dyed with persimmons. She loved the bag’s pure simplicity, described by her Japanese friend as “very shibui,” or “elegant with a touch of bitterness.” This inspired an enduring aesthetic. Shibui Knits was born in 2007, in the basement of Darcy’s yarn store in Portland, Oregon. Faced with the limitations of yarn from big-brand companies, she started her own label, bringing yarn of the highest quality to small, independent stores like her own. Shibui Knits has since grown to represent timeless sophistication in local yarn stores worldwide. Today, we continue to be grounded in the concept of simplicity well executed, with loving attention to detail."
Sugar Bush Yarns
About Sugar Bush Yarns: "At Sugar Bush Yarns, our aim is to inspire knitters and crocheters to create beautiful hand-knit projects that they'd be proud to wear or share. And much like the Sugar Maple trees that yield the sweet syrup, Sugar Bush is a symbol of Canada – hearty, bold and a wonder to behold. Inspired by winter and sparked by a fresh blanket of snow, Sugar Bush Yarn is a tribute to a Canadian inclination to embrace its northern temperament."
The Trinity Beanie by Sarah Thompson from Rich Textures Crochet uses 100% wool yarn from Sugar Bush.
About Madelinetosh: "Madelinetosh, affectionately known as Mad Tosh or (Mad-e-line-Tosh), was founded in 2006, as an ETSY SHOP. Based in Fort Worth, Texas, the iconic brand has grown into one of the most dynamic and leading hand-dyed yarn companies in the world. In the Fall of 2019, the Mad-Tosh team was adopted by the Jimmy Beans family, led visionaries and adventurers Laura and Doug Zander. A longtime Mad Tosh superfan (and one of the many filled with unconditional love for the brand), Laura and her team have been charged with preserving the Mad-Tosh legacy of soft, interesting and decadent yarn, pioneering dye techniques and original ideas of how to use color."
