How is Appletons wool sold?

Our wool is sold in either crewel (2 ply) weight or tapestry (4 ply). Each of these weights is then sold in either hanks (25 g, which is 55m of tapestry weight or 180m of crewel weight) or skeins (10m of tapestry weight, 25m of crewel weight).

How do I become an Appletons customer?

We only sell to trade customers. This means we have no direct outlet and we need to set up accounts in order to supply trade buyers. However, if you are not a trade customer, there is the facility to look up your nearest store on this website.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

Yes, the order must reach at least £20 in value (excluding VAT and carriage). Please also bear in mind that skeins are sold in bags or boxes of 10.

Do you have a printed colour card?

No, only shade cards with wool samples. However, you can see representations of our colours on this website. These colours are obviously not as accurate as a shade card due to variations on different computer monitors etc…
