Cor-O-Laine is the wool child of Le Stitch, a French indie dyer living in London, married to a Portuguese. Not surprising then that each wool is colour-designed with this combined heritage and culture in mind.

The idea of corolaine originated from a personal exasperation from mass-market wool providers. I was not happy never knowing where the wool came from, never satisfied with colour choices, and never having a clue what the dyeing process involved.

In response to that, I have developed my own range of wool, which I have personally selected from certified farms and suppliers. Each skein of wool has been dyed using environmental-friendly methods.
