Spinrite’s origins can be traced to the founding of Perfect Knitting Mills in Listowel in 1914, where the original building still stands. Today Spinrite is the largest craft yarn company in North America. They sell at various retailers, such as Michael’s and Walmart, as well as other smaller retailers. The success of Spinrite is largely due to the following they have developed online. It’s not so common for a textile business from the ’50s to stick around in North America. Spinrite has several brands:

  • Anchor
  • Aunt Lydia’s
  • Bernat
  • Caron (possibly the yarn made in the USA)
  • Coats & Clark
  • Dual Duty
  • Lily Sugar n’ Cream
  • Patons
  • Phentex
  • Red Heart
  • Sugar Bush
  • Susan Bates
