Welcome to Luxury Yarns

Customer Testimonials and Editorial Reviews

Here are just a few of the lovely things our customers have to say about us:


"Abby, it was so good to come to your lovely house this morning, to meet you, stroke some wonderful yarns and come away with some more to get going with! I cannot tell you how pleased I am to discover the delights of Luxury Yarns so close to home and your prices are excellent as well! Thank you also for your astute advice re not using such a pale colour for the moss and cable sweater. See you next week."
  Curzon, London (on purchasing Miski and Mia)


"Special order in a particular shade of gold arrived today, in the finest mulberry silk lace. And it's just right. It's purrrrfect. I want to make a circular lace wedding shawl/veil in an old gold colour to go over my teal dark teal wedding dress. Abby is brilliant, got me just what I wanted. I am a very happy bunny. Will post photo after the wedding in July. Thank you so much!"
  Lesley, Cheshire (on Bespoke extra fine lace)


"WOW, WOW and WOW!! Just received my order of 3 skeins of luxury Queen Silk Lace. I’m over the moon, the yarn is absolutely gorgeous, but opening the package was something else! That you had spent time to make the packaging as beautiful as the yarn, made the shopping experience all the more special. The thoughtful personal touches and complimenting gifts made opening such a pleasure, and that’s before you get to the sumptuous yarn!"
  Jan, Cleveland (on Queen Silk Lace)


"Many thanks for swift despatch of my really fabulous yarns - they arrived safely yesterday. They are even better in the 'flesh' than I had imagined. I am so over the moon with them, their feel and their beautiful colours. I give 20 marks out of 10 for excellent service, communication and speed of despatch!!"
  Maggie, Devon (on Queen Silk Lace and Mulberino Princess Lace)


"I just wanted to say thank you for the loveliest package I have received in a very long time. Not only is the yarn I ordered gorgeous and wonderful to the touch, but the sachet of lavendar and handwritten note were such a special addition."
  Rachel, London (on Silk Earl Aran)


"Thank you for the best yarn buying experience by far, and I love buying yarn :) - the cashmere is just a bit wonderful x"
  Jane, Somerset (on Perla 80% cashmere)


Hi Abby, my order arrived today and the yarn is even more beautiful than I could have hoped for. Thank you also for such fabulous service, and the tiny gifts and handwritten note were unexpected but a truly lovely touch. Some of the bigger companies forget about the customer and service suffers when they try to do too much. I wish you every success and I look forward to placing more orders in the future. xx"
  Philippa, Lancashire (on Queen Silk Lace)


Holy smokes, Abby!! My yarn arrived today, it is simply gorgeous and I cannot wait to finish my current shawl so I can start a new one with the new yarn!!!"
