What we sell (and what we give away)
We sell a wide variety of yarns, knitting needles and crochet hooks, patterns, accessories and kits.
We give away enthusiasm, encouragement and knowhow for free!
Our current yarn brands are Louisa Harding, Rico, Rooster Yarns, Manos del Uruguay and Nutscene. We sell hooks and needles by Brittany (made from sustainable birch wood), kits by Rico and Toft Alpaca, and stitch markers made exclusively for us by Fripperies and Bibelots.
Our current Louisa Harding ranges are Anise, Noema and Amitola. Anise is a chunky but light cotton/synthetic tape yarn, with a lovely soft handle and a vibrant palette of colours. Noema is a cotton/acrylic twist, while Amitola is a self-patterning light DK wool and silk blend.
Rico supply 100% cotton yarn in a range of exciting colours, both in DK and crochet weights.
Rooster Yarns supply our baby wool range – very soft and snuggly, and machine washable too. It’s somewhere between 4ply and DK weight so it’s light, too.
Manos del Uruguay are a Fair Trade supplier. Their ranges include Serena, a light cotton/alpaca blend; Alegria, a merino wool/nylon sock yarn; Silk Blend and Silk Blend Fino, and Manos Lace, an alpaca, silk and cashmere blend.
Nutscene are the joker in the pack: better known as suppliers of garden twine, their Candy Twist twine is a 100% cotton twine in a range of colours ideal for household accessories.
Toft are suppliers of 100% British Alpaca wool. We are stocking their Ed’s Menagerie kits – you get the wool, the hook, the pattern and the stuffing in a neat tote bag, ready to make up into a cute amigurumi animal.
