Sirdar

In 1880 the original spinning company was established in Ossett by the Harrap brothers, Tom and Henry, originally using only wool fibres. With only a handful of employees, the brothers set out to create a good name for themselves and to produce high quality products. Ten years later the business moved to the site it currently occupies in Alverthorpe, Wakefield.

  • Snuggly Bunny

Soft to wear and easy-care, the Snuggly range from Sirdar is perfect for all your baby knits. Snuggly Bunny is a new yarn made by Sirdar to fill the space left by discontinuing their Snowflake DK and Snowflake Chunky lines. It is the same texture, and in our opinion is even softer, with Sirdar replacing the pure polyester with pure nylon. Snuggly Bunny also comes in a 50g ball rather than the previous 25g ball.
