At Marriner, it’s safe to say that in our 200 plus years of selling yarn, we’ve almost ‘seen it all’. We say ‘almost’ as this week we’ve seen an unprecedented demand for our yarns, in particular our Marriner Mermaid Double Knit 100g.
Sales of Marriner Mermaid have been so rapid, at the time of writing, we’ve now sold out of our Carnival, Pink and Blue Mermaid colours with the just a limited amount of Marriner Sunshine and Pebble remaining on our warehouse shelves. It’s fair to say that our customer’s purchasing of this double knit yarn has been ‘viral’. Indeed, we’ve heard directly from our knitting community on our Facebook Page, that they’ve been sharing links to our yarns with their respective knitting groups which has led to this surge in demand.
Since the day our Greengate Mill opened in 1784 right up to today, Marriner Yarns has always had a deep rooted affinity with British wool.
In a global market where knitters are always looking for the best yarns at the most competitive prices, it would be easy for a company to lose track of its roots and forget where it’s come from. However at Marriner we’re proud that all of the wool we use in our wool yarns: Marriner Aran with Wool 400g (£5.50) and Marriner Double Knit with Wool 100g only use British wool.
We’re proud to offer our customers the best possible wool content at an unbeatable price whilst supporting British farmers.
