Patons knitting yarn has been available for several hundred years. They have been making yarn since the invention of the spinning mule. Today's modern firm is made up of two very old companies, both of which were making wool thread as far back as the 1770s; one was called Patons and the other was called Baldwins.
In 1920, the two firms merged and the resulting company went from making yarns solely for industrial use to producing for home knitters too. The firm is directly responsible for the development of several important modern yarns. In the mid-1930s, they came up with a way of producing knitting yarn using synthetic fibres like nylon and terylene. Today, the company is still coming up with new yarns, so there is always a great choice.
Their latest yarns are particularly impressive; most are highly textured, which allows the knitter to produce interesting and radically different effects than they would with older, more traditional varieties of Patons yarn. There is nothing quite like their new chunky wools, especially their Cobbles, Delish and Pirouette yarns. Patons yarn comes in an amazing array of colours, textures and weights. You can choose from 2, 3 and 4-ply as well as baby, DK, Aran, chunky, super chunky, fashion and scarf yarns. Whichever yarn you choose from the Patons range, you will find it easy and enjoyable to work with.
Patons knitting yarn is of very good quality. Whatever you decide to make will look fantastic, hang just right and should last. Patons yarn is also colourfast, so the toys, garments and soft furnishings you make will look crisp and bright no matter how often you wash them.
