AC Wood - History and Ethics
A C Wood (Speciality Fibres) Limited is a family business that has been producing and selling hand knitting yarns for over 30 years.
We are based in Bradford UK and have family involvement in natural fibres and yarns dating back to the 1930's and the height of the UK textile trade.
We have used our knowledge of fibres and yarns to provide the highest quality yarns and have an extensive range of contacts worldwide from which to source material.
The company is now run by Adrian Wood, the third generation. Adrian's father and grandfather were top makers and speciality fibre traders. The company started spinning in the 1980's.
Our mission is to supply the best quality worsted spun natural fibre yarns for hand dyers and discerning knitters.
Our fibres are sourced from reliable material suppliers where we can establish best practise in relation to animal husbandry and the environment, as well as the best rearing and grading practices.
No animals are injured to provide our fibre as we only use shorn or material that has shed naturally from the animal.
We are based on the outskirts of Bradford in beautiful, rural West Yorkshire. The vast majority of our spinning is done in Italy as we feel that this offers the highest standard of production now available in Europe. We source the fibres that we use ourselves which we ship to Italy where we keep a close control every aspect of the production process there.
We pride ourselves on having a vast and in depth knowledge of yarns, enabling us to understand how to achieve exceptional quality which we believe is unique to our products.
