I'd heard about a year ago Sirdar had been taken over by DMC who have several companies already. Some people know DMC embroidery threads which been sold in the UK for years. Who can tell what changes are afoot?!


Got this from the Yorkshire Post -

SIRDAR, one of the market leaders in hand knitting yarns, has been sold to the London-based mid-market private equity manager, BlueGem Capital Partners LLP, for an undisclosed sum. Based in Alverthorpe, Wakefield, Sirdar will sit alongside the complementary needlecraft brands, DMC (Dollfus-Mieg et Compagnie) and Wool And the Gang, which was acquired by BlueGem in August 2016.

I couldn't live without Sirdar but I see no reason for them change.

We seem to have more laws in place for nature conservancy in general. Our charities are not what you'd call lobbyists; (although I'm sure they do lobby politicians) They have between them hundreds of thousands of members and supporters. We also have '38 degrees' who work hard to get public support for many issues, many of them environmental and animal welfare. also petitions over 100,000 signatures are considered for debate in parliament. I don't think you have 38 degrees in US but do google it for info.

My vet still gives Frontline Gold. I asked about the pills and he said he would prefer to keep my dogs on Frontline, I didn't ask why. I wonder if this is the reason. No problems with the Frontline. Some say it no longer works, but it does on my dogs. Wonder if the Gold is different than the plain Frontline..my theory, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.


Frontline has been out of favour with vets here in UK for several years, mostly. I think, because it's lose of efficacy. Most seem to prescribe advocate now which seems ok - been using it on our various dogs for 2-3 years. It's made by Bayer so is probably available in US

Have read through this thread - and am very saddened. Once again he seems to be living a world devoid of any understanding of our planet. Perhaps we could persuade Sir David Attenborough to stand for US president next time - he'd be 94 but he'd do a lot better than the current mob for our planet. Is there no equivalent of the RSPB, BTO et al in USA - what about Birdlife International? and so it goes on - and on - and on........

Glad to hear they will return - my husband and I will look forward to a "breakfast with laughs" again soon!!!!
