It all depends on what you are after?
Cotton or other NFC I am not sure of UK manufacturers or suppliers but I'm sure that some one will be along shortly to help!
Colors or MMFC try

Thank you for your concern. I am all right, but had to close temporarily for new orders as the demand for my products caused delivery problems and my wait list became too long. After preparations for meet in Loughborough I will open for new orders again. Mikko
