Coloring Our Way

Coloring our way…

As a family, we have been producing yarns for the fashion industry for many years. For this, we need to constantly create new exciting yarns to meet the fashions of the moment. In this we have been very successful. But why should a beautiful yarn exist only for one season and be for only one designer brand? I wanted everyone to enjoy these yarns. This is why I decided to launch Unique Yarns Co.

At Unique Yarns Co., we use special dyeing methods developed in-house together with unusual dyes from around the world. Like this, we are able to produce yarns unlike anything else available.

Our most recent yarn collection is entirely dyed with natural mineral pigments, as examples using graphite to produce an Earthy grey, lazurite rich earth to make bright ultramarine blue and gold ochre for yellow. This is how classical painters would produce color on canvas before the invention of chemical dyes.  Other visual and tactile effects include suede, leather, rubber, denim, metallized, crayon, sidereal… all effects applied on the best quality wool, cotton and cashmere.

About the Company

A journey with yarn

Founded by a second-generation colourist, Unique Yarns Co. is a London-based artisan yarn dying company with Italian roots. Building on decades of experience working with the Italian fashion industry, we now produce yarns for crafters and artisan makers all over the world.

What makes us different? Every yarn we produce is born from a desire to produce something truly original. To achieve this, we are always developing new coloring methods and sourcing interesting dyes and pigments from around the world. Perhaps you’ve seen our Mineral Series of merino wools, dyed with natural pigments from the earth, or our Glow-in-the-dark phosphorescent range…

We’re always interested in connecting with fellow creators. If you have any questions, an idea for a collaboration, a suggestion or service you can offer, we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch!
