The company was founded in the late 70’s in California as Yarn Loft International as part of a yarn shop’s efforts to import primarily serger threads from Japan. YLI’s 100% long staple cotton products are purchased from Egypt, dyed in North Carolina, Georgia or Japan and then finished, wound and packaged in South Carolina. Hand Quilting thread has an additional step of starch glazing in Massachusetts. Today YLI is one of the last companies producing our consumer cotton threads in the U.S.
