Wool Spinning with Heritage

b31Gardiner Yarns is the trading name of Brierley Brothers Ltd a highly successful wool spinning company established in 1896 in the town of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

The strong reputation of the Brierley Brothers Ltd, developed over the last century, continued to grow and in 2001 the decision was made to acquire the Scottish woollen yarn spinning business of Gardiner of Selkirk from Worthington Group plc. Gardiner of Selkirk had similar strengths and heritage to Brierley Brothers Ltd in woollen spun yarns and stock supported ranges.

Gardiner Yarns continues to develop, retaining the strength of its heritage and traditional values of quality and worth whilst incorporating modern innovation and processes to deliver the highest quality yarns.  We are proud to continue trading from Albert Mills in Huddersfield – our home since 1896. Our strong associations in Scotland make us a trusted supplier there as well as in the rest of the UK. Our reputation internationally continues to grow as a provider of quality and versatility.
