Town End Yarns

In 2006, Town End Yarns we bought its first thirteen pregnant alpacas, Kim took their fleeces to a mini-mill to be spun into fawn, grey and white DK and aran yarn. 

The range of knitting wools, accessories and patterns has grown year on year and, now that Brian has retired from breeding alpacas and the herd has gone, Kim buys top quality alpaca fleece from breeders in the UK and painstakingly sorts it herself .  Although she produce many alpaca blends dyed in beautiful colours, pure UK alpaca yarns, in the wide range of natural colours, will continue to be at the heart of what Town End Yarns does.
