Sirdar was established in 1880 in Ossett, West Yorkshire and although they are still in West Yorkshire, they have a short distance to Alverthorpe.  Sirdar was named as they needed a strong brand name and chose Sirdar, meaning leader, after Lord Kitchener’s appointment as Sirdar of the Egyptian Army.  It has been a household name for many years, as most people remember their parents and grandparents knitting Sirdar yarns.  Hayfield became part of the Sirdar family in the 1970’s and sells a range of yarns and patterns for many projects.  DMC and Wool and The Gang are also new additions as part of the Sirdar family.
