About Us

At a time when life long knitter, Anita, was being made redundant for the third time, she couldn't resist when her local wool shop was advertised for sale. Taking destiny into her own hands (otherwise known as a midlife crisis) in August 2009 Anita became the third owner of a wool shop that's enjoyed a lifespan of almost 90 years.

Anita's passion for all things yarny is reflected in the diverse range of yarns, accessories and patterns available. From amazing value, all purpose acrylic ranges like Stylecraft's Special DK - perfect for creating swathes of multi coloured crocheted blankets - to the brands everyone knows and loves - James C Brett, Cygnet, Sirdar - and introducing different yarns and brands that we want to share with you - Scheepjes, Adriafil.

We pride ourselves in offering the best guidance and advice we can to ensure you enjoy your project and complete it in confidence. We want to extend that level of service to our online customers and urge you to contact us by phone or e-mail if you are substituting a yarn and have any doubts about the type of yarn or how much you'll need. We may not be able to answer the phone straight away if the shop is busy, but please leave a message and we will get back to you.
