Keeping Britain Knitting Since 1784

Our DK With Wool 100G is a quality yarn at an unbeatable price of £1.50

With over 200 years of supplying the Great British public with yarn, it’s fair to say that Marriner has ‘woven’ it’s way into the hearts of knitting enthusiasts throughout the country.

From our beginnings as a cotton spinning mill in Yorkshire in 1784, right up to selling our yarn online today, our company’s two hundred year history has run parallel with Britain’s love of knitting.

We’re proud to have played such a big part in the lives of our knitting community. Indeed many of our customers today remember when they had garments knitted for them, using Marriner Yarns, when they were children. Such longevity is a privilege and honour, which we don’t take for granted…

British Knitting

Although the way in which our customers buy yarn may have changed (we no longer accept a threepence!), our commitment to offering quality yarns at unbeatable prices is as true today as it was 200 hundred years ago. We are passionate about providing you, our customer, with consistent, honest pricing so that you can be confident that you’re getting the best possible price. No fad sales. No ‘huge discounts’. Just year-long, honest pricing.

If you’re a Marriner customer of old or a newbie knitter buying your first yarns with us, we’d love to hear from you. Why not drop by our Facebook Page or follow us on Twitter and let us know how you’re using our yarns.

Thanks for dropping by and happy knitting!
