The original promise of strength and quality remains at the forefront of Anchor's brand ideology - combined with a wide range of textures and colours - "As colourful as your imagination".
The crochet yarns are manufactured using the latest technologies and dyeing processes. All cotton yarns are produced according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, so Anchor products are free from banned azo dyes and carcinogenic and allergenic dyes.
It is crucial to Anchor that the manufacturing techniques they use result in products that cannot be classified as harmful to health. PH levels are tested regularly to ensure that their products do not irritate the skin, and all items are tested for friction, perspiration, saliva and water fastness to ensure that each dye delivery meets global fastness standards. This makes them ideal for garments for babies and toddlers up to 3 years old.
We offer Anchor crochet yarns in the entire available colour range in complete sales units only, not individually. You save 6% compared to the normal retail price.
We do not have the Anchor yarns in stock ourselves and order them for you from the manufacturer after your order.
