Appletons Crewel English Wool

Appletons wool is unique, not just for its color range, consistency and vibrancy but for its heritage; it is British from sheep to needle and only leaves shores once en route to its final destination.

Available in over 420 colors and two weights it can be used in needlepoint, tapestry, embroidery, weaving (in fact, almost any creative work) and comes in either hanks, for those who need larger amounts of the same color, and skeins which are smaller, labeled for convenience and perfect for projects needing smaller amounts of different wools. (We currently stock Crewel Hanks only, but will be expanding in the near future)

All colors and both forms are available in either two-ply (crewel) wool or four-ply (tapestry) wool and are usually in stock. As a guide, the amount of wool in each is as follows:

Crewel Hank: 180m                  Tapestry Hank 55m

Crewel Skein: 25m                    Tapestry Skein 10m

The color range can be viewed at or order a shade card that has a sample of every one of the Appletons colors!
