Appletons reputation has been built up over generations by selecting the finest English wools from the wool markets in Bradford, Yorkshire, and having them spun in the UK into either 4 ply tapestry or 2 ply crewel wool.
Appletons wool is dyed to 423 different shades, all of which are available in both tapestry and crewel weights. Some of the colors are the original shades used by William Morris in his designs and still popular today. More modern shades have been developed over the years and a mixture of these are used by a variety of tapestry and rug designers around the world.
