Products and links

We like to stock quality products that are enjoyable to work with and will produce a lasting project. We are picky about our yarns. We have a standing stock of yarns and stock UK wool where ever possible. We like to show you samples knitted or crocheted, as yarn often looks and feels different when worked. We also stock batches of  guest yarns from our suppliers some new, some different, some to try. If you want stock of a product from one of our suppliers we haven’t got in stock at present please ask.
