Sustainable, traceable, ethical fine wools
At ‘Annabel Williams’ wools are sourced from farmers that care for their flocks to the highest possible standards, guaranteeing a mulesing free process when collecting fibres. So, you can be sure of a fair and humane treatment of their flocks.
For me it’s important to know the origins of my yarns; that way I can make informed and transparent choices, so traceability is at the heart of what I do. This goes right back to the shearing date, and every step in-between.

Non-toxic, plant based dyes create modern yarns for modern knits with as little impact on the environment as possible.
What I Do
I’m passionate about textiles and natural dyes when crafting a skein that is truly luxurious. Naturally dyed in my studio, I create yarns on a slow and small scale – my connection with the process is slow and meaningful. It’s my desire to produce sustainably dyed wools with minimal environmental impact, supporting independent suppliers and British mills on this journey.
