Sweaters & Knitted Accessories
From our first days in the yarn business back in the 1920s, National has been the premiere US sweater yarn resource.
Today we offer a broad range of products for flat and circular knitting. Our modern dyehouse can provide a range of color matches and kettle sizes. Our knowledge of domestic knit resources gives you the opportunity to learn not only about yarns but also about contract sweater resources.
