At the Craft Twinery you will find the world's largest range of baker's twines and craft twines - the Beautful Bakers Twine range manufactured by James Lever of Bolton, a family business in its sixth generation based in the heart of Lancashire's former cotton industry. James Lever's was established in 1856 and is England's last remaining cotton twine manufacturer.
The Beautiful Bakers Twine range consists of a plethora of twines and cords in a host of colours, colour combinations and diameters and is made entirely in the UK from start to finish. The natural yarn is sourced from a local supplier and dyed by a local yarn dying company before it is ready for the twine factory, where it undergoes several processes to form large bobbins of baker’s twine. It is the twisting machine that twists the colours to give the bakers twine its distinctive candy stripe appearance.
Once the bobbins of baker’s twine have been produced, it is then spooled down to the required sizes for customers. This is done on a spooling machine, where the baker’s twine is wound off the large bobbins and onto UK manufactured cardboard tubes to form spools of twine. The same traditional techniques are still used today on machinery that has been producing quality twines for decades..
