Appletons Crewel Skein $2.90 BUY NOW

For the last 180 years, the family firm of Appleton Bros has been producing fine quality tapestry and crewel wool. Based until early 2013 in Chiswick, London, near the river Thames, Appletons has moved more recently to the village of Long Crendon in Buckinghamshire, near the historic market town of Thame. Although the firm is no longer family owned, the essence of the company remains the same, with the quality of the wool and personal attention to detail being of paramount importance.

Appletons reputation has been built up over generations by selecting the finest English wools from the wool markets in Bradford, Yorkshire, and having them spun in the UK into either 4 ply tapestry or 2 ply crewel wool. It is hardwearing, mothproofed and durable. Tapestries made from it last generations, and Appletons is particularly proud to have been involved with the recent completion of the world famous Bayeux Tapestry as well as the Prestonpans tapestry and the ongoing Great Tapestry of Scotland.

Appletons wool is dyed to 423 different shades, all of which are available in both tapestry and crewel weights. Some of the colours are the original shades used by William Morris in his designs and still popular today. More modern shades have been developed over the years and a mixture of these are used by a variety of tapestry and rug designers around the world.

Madeira Lana
Madeira Lana

Lana is a speciality embroidery thread with the characteristics and appearance of pure wool adding warmth and dimension to decorative stitching on all home sewing and embroidery machines.

A unique wool embroidery thread, strong enough for use on medium to heavyweight fabrics such as wool, linen and lightweight denim. It is particularly suitable for computerized embroidery, overlocking, quilting, bobbin work, free motion embroidery, couching, hand embroidery and cross stitch.

Lana is about three times thicker than standard weight thread and fills designs quickly, meaning at reduced speed Lana produces larger stitches, and the stitched area requires fewer stitches to cover it.

See Colour Charts, while we tried to get the colours as close as we can they can vary depending on your computer screen.
