Open positions at TOFT luxury yarn brand in Warwickshire, UK.

THE COMPANY

TOFT is a full-service craft company designing and manufacturing fashion-led knitwear and inspiring crochet patterns and is based on an alpaca farm in Warwickshire. We grade the raw fibre, design the yarns, develop the patterns, teach people how to make them and deliver all of that with a smile and a perfect cappuccino at our on-farm studio.

We are modern craft evangelists and the team is comprised of creative, independent thinkers challenging perceptions of knitters and crocheters. Our diverse business means there is never a boring day in the TOFT office or studio as we despatch orders, teach workshops and design and develop new patterns to take to market.
