More about Briggs & Little Yarn
Briggs and Little Regal is a premium Canada grade wool knitting yarn made from 100% domestic wool, and is milled, carded, dyed, and spun at the Briggs and Little factory in York Mills, New Brunswick, Canada. It’s the same place it’s been for over 150 years.
Today, Briggs & Little is one of the few remaining vertical woolen mills in Canada and North America. For example, the Briggs and Little woolen mill performs all of the processes and functions to change raw wool into wool spun yarns and products, all under one roof. Mill processes include scouring, dying, blending, carding, spinning, reeling, packaging and labeling.
