Made in the UK

"All of our products should be produced here in the UK, collaborating with other great textile manufacturers ensuring that the skills that we have developed over the generations are kept alive and built upon".

"We work closely with UK spinners, yarn doublers and ballers to produce some of the highest quality yarns that can be found! We dye all yarns in our own Lancashire dye house. We use a local printer to produce all of our labels and another local supplier of packaging products, meaning that we really are made in the UK".

 

Quality

"We control the quality of our yarns through our in house laboratory. We control exactly every chemical and dyestuff that is used to dye our yarns. We comply to all REACH regulations and work closely with the most reputable dye and chemical suppliers in the world". 

"We use the same dyes and chemicals that are used to dye some of the biggest names in UK fashion and textiles. All of our batches must pass a colour measurement test, using the latest colour matching technology. All batches will be a maximum of Delta E 1.0 to standard, which is a leading colour matching tolerance".

The dream is to grow Three Bears Yarn into a name that is known worldwide for it's high quality, ethical and moral values. We will certainly do all that we can to produce and protect a high quality yarn from the Pennines in England.
