Built upon values of tradition and highest quality, Briggs & Little has continued to produce the highest quality of 100% pure wool yarns for generations. We will continue to deliver that same consistent product for years to come!
All of our premium Canada grade wool knitting yarns are made from 100% domestic wool, and are milled, carded, dyed, and spun at our factory in York Mills, New Brunswick, Canada. It’s the same place it’s been for over 150 years.
Today, Briggs & Little is one of the few remaining vertical woolen mills in Canada and North America. For example, our woolen mill performs all of the processes and functions to change raw wool into wool spun yarns and products, all under one roof. Our 100% wool blankets are woven for us right here in Atlantic Canada using our own 100% woolen spun yarns. Mill processes include scouring, dying, blending, carding, spinning, reeling, packaging and labeling.
Our products, listed on our website, include Canadian premium wool spun, homespun, traditional spun, wool/nylon blend yarns, and Country Roving unspun yarns. In addition, we offer various plys and colors, knitting patterns, books, catalogues, related accessories, knitting bags, and Canadian made 100% wool blankets. Our woolen-spun yarns are appropriate for clothing, bedding, and anything else which is intended to provide warmth and wicking.
Our company is well known by our quality, value and service. Briggs & Little, a Canadian yarn manufacturer, has been in production at the same location here in York Mills, New Brunswick since 1857.
You will find our yarns in most yarn shops, and you can see our complete line up of products which includes yarn, patterns, and support products such as wool wash, knitting bags etc. on our web site.
