Founded in 1915 Alfred Brown (Worsted Mills) Ltd have spent the last century perfecting the bulk production of worsted fabrics of outstanding quality and consistency.
We are one of the few remaining mills, still producing in the UK, who can offer consistent mix and match on bulk fabric orders from batch to batch.
Alfred Brown fabrics are mostly 100% Merino wool with some wool blends. Suitable for suiting, jackets, coats and trousers. Our heritage weaves and designs work alongside contemporary fashion trends to create a classically British collection.
Our seasonal collection is available to order from 335 metres . New designs are launched twice a year for spring / summer and autumn / winter.
We stock support over 200 of our classic English fabric lines which are available to order with minimums of just 35 metres. Providing an accessible entry point for small brands and tailors.
From high-street retailers and corporate clients, where competitive pricing and consistency is key; to fashion and tailoring brands who require fine luxury fabrics, using only the best raw materials and finishing processes. We manufacture a broad range of fabrics which cater for all.
Our fabrics have been exported globally since the early 1970’s. Finding homes with some of the biggest and most respected names in retail, fashion, tailoring and even on the sets of blockbuster films.
We are proud to have been manufacturing on the same site in the heart of Yorkshire for over 100 years. Throughout our history we have invested consistently in the latest weaving technology. This, along with a respect for traditional weaving techniques and a wealth of retained knowledge, allows us impressive efficiency gains, while retaining quality and craftsmanship.
Our history was built on military, fire service and police uniforms. Today, our customer base is much more diverse. We still supply corporate wear and uniforms for British and international schools and companies, including the Household Guard. But our fabric is used for much more, click below to learn more about our history.
