Yarn Sourcing and Supply Services at KOCO Knitting

Access to Yarns From All Around the World

At KOCO Knitting, we provide our customers with extensive yarn choices from spinning mills worldwide.

Our operations based in India have also developed strong partnerships with local mills that produce an extensive collection of yarns. Many times, they custom spin yarns, especially for us.  Our network of yarn suppliers supports us in meeting the diverse needs of our fashion designers and brand managers with precision, accurate interpretation, and care. 

Our Yarn Sourcing Capabilities

Global Yarn Partnerships

We are experienced importers and buyers of yarn and have been doing this for decades. Over the years, we have purchased from almost all countries with a spinning mill and look forward to working with you to buy/find/develop yarn.  

Example 1. Merino Wool from a Specialised Mill in India

Our collaboration with a specialised mill in India allows us to offer custom-made and off-the-shelf Merino and non-Merino wool options. One particular mill is an expert in spinning Merino wool to our specifications, from super thick to very thin yarns, ensuring the end result achieves the desired look. 

This same mill offers custom dye services with a minimum of five kilos per colour, enabling complete customisation to match your creative vision.

Example 2. Recycled Yarns for Diverse Fashion Needs

In line with our commitment to sustainability, we also work closely with a mill that specialises in producing recycled yarn. 

There are three types of recycled yarn:

  • Recycled Cotton (is a fabulous yarn for between seasons)
    .
  • Recycle Denim (in 3 different colours, is also a great look)
    .
  • Recycled Wool (has a dry feel and is most suited for outdoors, such as going for a walk or watching the local soccer) 

If the recycled wool needs to be softer and cosier, we add one strand of mohair. This changes the feel and look quite considerably, so the end result is almost identical to an alpaca—soft and indulgent.
