About Us

More about Elann International

elann.com was founded in British Columbia, Canada in 1993, as a North American mail order yarn retailer. Our mission was simple – to offer yarns that customers would love, at prices they’d adore.

Our debut e-commerce site, launched in 1995, was one of the very first online yarn sources in North America, and quickly became the online standard for excellence in quality, value, and customer service. In 2013, we launched our A-Series, a new line of yarns designed to raise our standard of excellence even higher, by sharing as much technical information as possible with our customers and asking for their input. We’re now committed to including this information for every new yarn we add to our collection.



Today, from our scenic Sunshine Coast location in beautiful Gibsons, BC, our mission continues to be to offer the best possible yarns with the best possible value, but to a larger international marketplace, through Amazon's fulfillment program. Currently elann.com yarns are offered on amazon. ca, amazon.com, and amazon.co.uk, warehoused and shipped to you directly by Amazon. We hope to expand and grow as Amazon does.

This site is designed to showcase our brand and to keep you updated on our yarns and their international availability. If you're not already subscribed to elann.com's email newsletter list, please sign up - we'd love to have you join our community.
