21st Century Yarns specialise in unique hand-dyed Yarns, Threads, Fabrics and Designs for all creative Textile Artists.
Since being set up in the late 1980s we have extended our international reputation for exclusive and beautiful products and personal service.
Whether you are a Knitter, Embroiderer, Quilter, Crocheter, Weaver, Spinner, Braid or Tassel Maker, Hair Extention Stylist or specialist in any form of creative textile art we hope that you will find something of interest amongst our exciting ranges of plain and textured materials and that you will enjoy shopping on our website.
We use top quality yarns in luxury, natural fibres including Silks, Wools and Cottons which are available in a wonderful array of some 70 space-dyed 'Reflections' colourways and some plain Fine Silk and Shetland shades to complement. The kaleidoscope of colours and textures have exciting names such as 'Fiesta', 'Fugue' and 'Adriatic' to fire the creative imagination.
Skeins are dyed individually by Judith Gussin, a trained colour technologist, who also specialises in machine and textured Embroidery based on ethnic textiles.
Exclusive designs by Maggie Whiting feature jackets, waistcoats, jumpers, hats, throws and cushions many of which are in patchwork designs including our ever-popular Clamshell patterns.
