Appletons Crewel Wool

Appletons wool is dyed to 423 different shades. Some of the colours are the original shades used by William and May Morris in their designs and are still popular today. More contemporary shades have been developed over the years and a mixture of these are used by designers and textile artists around the world. Appletons Crewel Wool stitches beautifully in to felt.
