Stylecraft is recognised as one of the leading and most respected hand knitting brands in the UK, with a loyal following of knitters who appreciate quality and style combined with unsurpassed value for money.
The brand was launched back in 1989 by four founding partners and with the support of yarn spinners, Richards of Aberdeen. Richards subsequently acquired the company and operated it until 2002 when ownership passed to Spectrum Yarns of Huddersfield, where it remains today. John Frankish, one of the original partners – or ‘Mr. Stylecraft’ as he is affectionately known, remains at the helm of the company.
Whilst originally concentrating its ranges in the high volume acrylic sector of the market and servicing the requirements of its ‘own label’ customers, Stylecraft has made significant inroads into the fashion and speciality yarn areas in recent years as it has developed and grown in line with the revitalised popularity of hand knitting.
Hand in hand with the development of its new collections, emphasis has been placed on the publication of exclusive and creative designs in the form of knitting patterns for all the family – from classic baby to the latest ladies fashions.
Throughout the company’s history, its core values have remained constant. The desire to offer the finest quality, outstanding ranges and customer service is at the centre of Stylecraft’s success. We pride ourselves on being an approachable and friendly team from our sales representatives to our internal sales and consumer support staff, we are here to bring you the best in hand knitting.
