Appletons Tapestry Wool

Appletons WoolsWe stock over 400 shades of Appletons 4 ply tapestry wool in hanks (which are 55 metres/ 60 yards/ 25 grams) or half hanks. 

We also stock every shade of Appletons 2 ply crewel wool, available in hanks (180 yards/ 164 m/ 25 grams) or half hanks. 

If you know the shade number, put it into the search box top right corner, otherwise scroll down and click on the colour range you require. If we don't have  sufficient quantities in stock, we can order it for you. (Appletons use a 3 digit shade number, take the first two numbers of the series then the colour number i.e. 101, 292 etc.).

Enlarge the photos by clicking the magnifying icon in the middle of the photo then click the little 'cross' icon in the top right corner to see the shades but please note: due to differences in computer screens the colours on the website should be used as a guide only. If you are trying to match colours to complete a project please feel free to send us a sample and we will match for you. Or, we now sell a boxed set of swatches for all 421 Appletons colours. A valuable resource, presented in 4ply wools but the 2ply crewel shades are identical.

Appletons wool is spun and dyed in England using pure British wool. It is hard wearing, moth-proofed and long lasting ensuring your needlepoint will last for generations.
