Paternayan yarn (also known as Paterna and Colonial Persion yarn) is the absolute top notch wool for working with. 100% Persian virgin wool, three stranded and 2-ply yarn dyed in a rainbow of colours and available in differing lengths.
Paternayan has had a varied history in recent years. We are the main UK stockist, and have amassed a wide collection. Because our collection has come from different sources and different times, we really do encourage you to call us if colour matching is important.
We hold stocks of many colours, in differing lengths. We have a mix of skeins, hanks and continuous lengths on cones. There are also some plaits.
Skeins may come in 7.3m single lengths or a multiple of 10 x 80cm pre-cut lengths (which is a suitable length for stitching with).Because of the limitations of putting variables onto an online shop, we have only listed skeins and hanks.
Where it appears that a colour is out of stock, please get in touch as we may have cones or cut lengths available. We will be undertaking a details stock take this Autumn 2021, and will put a separate page up with more details about what we have.
If you do not wish to receive cut lengths, please put a note on your order, so we can confirm that we are able to supply the single length.
