King Cole: The Only Wholesale Supplier For Independents

We have been a wholesale supplier providing for independent wool retailers for decades and this is why they choose to buy through us

The thriving knitting and crafts sector is being supplied by a growing number of independent stores selling the wool and yarn used to create clothes, toys patterns and more.

Independent sellers are the direct link between the small businesses and hobbyists that purchase wool and yarn and the wholesale suppliers that manufacture and distribute it.

Here at King Cole, we believe that independent sellers are the life and soul of the knitting and crafts industry and we take great pride in being a key wholesale supplier, offering yarns to these stores with our products.

As an independent supplier, deciding which wholesaler to purchase wool and yarn from can be a tough decision, with many factors to consider.

The range of wool and yarn offered, the quality of the material and the price all need to be thought about, as well as the reputation of the wholesaler.

King Cole is one of the most established and trusted wool and yarn wholesalers in the UK and further afield having been established in 1935.

We were founded as a family business and have remained that way ever since. We are deeply passionate about the wool and yarn industry and have strong values that we adhere to always.

To us, it does not matter if you are a large retailer with locations across the country or a small independent store in a village – we provide the same unrivalled products and services.

We do this from our headquarters in Skipton, North Yorkshire, where we employ a team of wool and yarn specialists and experts.

This allows us to stay at the cutting edge of the industry and continue to lead the way when it comes to production, support and sales.

Why independents work with us:

One of the main reasons that independent suppliers purchase wool and yarn from King Cole is the massive range of products that we offer.

Our mission has always been to provide independents with the widest range of quality, yet affordable, wool and yarn so that we can meet all needs and requirements.

Our wools come in different styles and weights – the fibres we use have distinctive densities relating to the size of the thread chosen.

This includes:

• 3ply
• 4ply
• Double knit
• Aran wool
• Chunky
• Super chunky

Another reason independent retailers choose King Cole as their wholesale supplier is the rainbow of colours that our wools and yarns come in.

Pick from blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, white, yellow and even multicoloured wools. This, combined with our different qualities, means you can meet any customer requirement and budget.

Perhaps the most important reason why independent wool and yarn sellers choose to buy their stock from King Cole is the unrivalled customer support we offer.

We have built our reputation on our customer service and have been working with some independent suppliers for ten years and more.

Our specialist agents are always on hand to talk you through our range of wools and yarns and answer any questions you may have.

In addition to this, we are able to offer fast and reliable delivery of your wool and yarn whether you are an independent seller located in the UK or internationally.

Indeed, our position as one of the top international suppliers has seen King Cole be given the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade.

All of this makes us the best wool and yarn wholesaler for independent stores and sellers. If you would like to chat more about our products and services, drop us a line here.
