About Us

Who Are We?

The Yarn Store is an off-shoot of Robert Todd & Son Ltd, a family owned business who have supplied luxury yarns to big high street names (including Next, Boden & Edinburgh Woollen Mill) for generations. 

What Makes Us Special?

We created The Yarn Store so that small buyers such as yourself can buy high quality yarn in small quantites - as little as one cone of yarn. We deal directly with only the finest spinners and are able to offer great prices in a wide range of colours and qualities, especially spun just for you. Cashmere, Merino, Alpaca, Lambswool, Silk, Cotton and Fancy Boucle are, to name but a few yarns, available to buy through us - if that's not enough choice for you, get in touch and we'll see what we can do to satisfy your craving for yarn.

How Do I Order?

This is where it can get a little confusing. The cones are picked to order, and the factories are set up for big production quantites, the cone weight can vary +/- 1kg. This means that we need to authorise payment for 0.5kg during checkout, but we don't take any money until it is dispatched to you - and we only take what you receive.


  1. You order 1kg of yarn for £50
  2. During checkout we authorise payment for £75
  3. We may ship 1.25kg
  4. We charge your card £62.50

Note: It is rare that you will ever be charged the full amount for yarn as the spinners rarely spin 0.5kg more than your order, it's just there to cover us in case they do - we have small margins and need to put food on our plates too! It is entirely possible that you could receive less than the average weight of cone and then you'll be saving money.
