We have a huge selection of Dill tubed buttons with regular deliveries from Dill's full stock of some 20,000 different lines. We own the business of Loweth Wools, offering excellent value and quality across a range of yarns.

We are constantly seeking interesting new lines to distribute in the UK so that we can continue to "give you the choice".

We can offer manufacturer’s or our own display fixtures for most products and are very happy to discuss individual requirements.
