Ethical Yarn Directory

What makes a ‘Real Good Yarn’? This ethical yarn directory has been compiled as a result of conversations with suppliers, recommendations and online research. It details yarn suppliers who take extra steps to care for animals, people and the environment. I don’t audit the suppliers and there’s no standard certification process. I suspect that as I learn more about the ethics of the world of wool and yarn that the listings will change. I certainly hope that a lot more suppliers of ‘real good’ yarn will be added.

I am currently offering a FREE Premium Listing to suppliers who are taking extra steps to care for their animals, the planet and/or the people involved in the production of their yarns. A Premium Listing allows for them to add their ‘real good’ credentials as well as photos to their listings

If you have any specific questions or want to find out more about a particular yarn then please contact the supplier directly. If you know of suppliers that I should add to the directory then please let me know.

I hope you enjoy your exploration of Real Good Yarns.

wildwoven started as añañuca, an accredited fair trade business working directly with skilled spinners in Chile to produce a range of highly-textured homespun yarns for adventurous knitters and weavers.
The aim with añañuca was to bring to the UK the very best of Chilean artisan design. Our ethos was simple – all of our products were hand made, and traded fairly, showing due respect for the skills of the artisan and their need to make a dignified livelihood. We endeavoured to provide opportunities for skilled artisans to continue to practise their craft in their own homes, bringing in a much-needed income, whilst sharing their time between the many demands of life on a family smallholding.
Fast forward a good few years filled with many valuable learning experiences, friendships forged in Chile, and a hefty smattering of family life with our own sheep on our small holding in mid Wales, and here we are today.
