UPW is the largest woolen spinner in the world, specialising in design-led, sustainable yarns. UPW’s ECO Preferred Fibres include RWS certified wool, GCS certified cashmere, GRS certified recycled PET, OCS and GOTS certified organic cotton. Our entire collection is available at UPW’s StockStore® with no minimums, making luxurious and sustainable yarns accessible to both small and large brands alike.
Design has always been integral to UPW’s ethos. The launch of our U-LAB collaborative aims to transform the design and sampling process. U-LAB embraces digital innovation, and through our partnership with Shima Seiki, we digitalise all yarns – with 3000 plus colours. We make it possible for designers to create realistic virtual 3D simulations and custom lab dips with tailored colour twists to meet your needs.
UPW yarn collections include woolen-spun, semi-worsted, and fancy twisted yarns that are dyed and spun in our facilities. Our mills are certified by OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and operate according to the highest industry standards, which include clean dyeing processes, high powered water filtration systems, and green energy solutions that lower emissions and energy consumption. UPW continues to search for innovative technologies and materials that enable us to be a clean manufacturer, early adopter, and industry leader in sustainable spinning.
