Garthenor’s mission is to promote and provide a variety of sustainable, organic & British yarns in an ecologically responsible way. Their aim is to help secure the future of British organic agriculture and the British textile industry. All the wool you’ll see under the Garthenor name have been certified to global organic standards.

Garthenor started in the 1990s, with wool produced from their own sheep. Since then they expanded faster than their flock, and now they buy raw fleeces from around the UK directly from the farmer – no middle man, which means all Garthenor wool is fully traceable from sheep to hank.

Garthenor's artisan yarns are produced from wool sourced directly from the finest certified organic flocks in the UK, and are carefully blended to produce deep, heathery, and also duotoned shades in an unrivalled undyed palette.

Garthenor Number 3 is a DK yarn suitable for practical wear but also for that one very special heirloom piece. It is sturdy with a gorgeous stitch definition, still very soft and shiny with a little lustre. Three strands of Garthenor Number 1 are gently twisted together to form the DK weight. By using 3 plies, the result is an exceptionally round and even yarn, perfect for cabling and other textured stitches.

Garthenor Number 3 comes in a wide range of natural colours - all created through the careful choice of fibre blends. Please note that the due to the weight of the different blends there is a small difference in meterage between them:
