Maurice Brassard is a family run mill in Canada that has been operating since the 1970’s.They produce a beautiful range of high quality, richly coloured cotton yarns that are perfect for weaving with.
"In 2018 I visited Leclerc Looms in Plessisville, Canada. I was visiting to look at their loom production and did not realise that they also sold yarn under the company name of 'Maurice Brassard'. I was frustrated with the lack of choice of weaving yarns in Melbourne and Australia. Our yarn is geared towards knitting and there is a big difference when it comes to the twist of weaving yarns versus knitting yarns. All 'Maurice Brassard' Yarns are suitable for both warp and weft."
