Back to basics

It's such a great job filling a shop with beautiful yarns and we think we've chosen some corkers. If you don't find what you'd like, let me know.

At the moment we have:

Debbie Bliss - huge range of Baby Cashmerino, the Rialtos, Fez and Amalfi
Araucania Ranco sock wool
Cygnet sock wool and Aran (both Truly Wool Rich)
Mirasol K'Acha DK and Akapana aran
Patons wools and cottons - lots!
Artesano - loads of gorgeous alpaca and superwash merino
Yeoman Yarns - a range of cottons and acrylics, mostly on cones - can be used by handknitters and machine knitters alike
Recycled silk and banana fibre yarns - extensive range of 'ethnic' yarns in vibrant colours and at really reasonable prices
Noro - Kureyon aran and Yuzen DK

We're adding to these all the time.

We also have needles (altho' not as many as I'd like at the moment - the needle situation will improve from mid-August onwards), patterns, accessories, cards, tags and gifts. Oh, and gift vouchers. And if the yarn you buy is in hanks, there's a swift and ball winder available for making it into balls/cakes.

Come down and see us and tell us what you think!


  1. Ah - found you. :)
    The next time I'm in Halifax I shall pop in. Sadly, I can't knit for toffee though...

  2. Hi Casdok, thanks.

    Shirley - that would be great!
