Love this shop! Use the online shop and visit whenever I’m in Lancaster. Great yarn, fabulous service from lovely Kate and lots of support and encouragement in my knitting


A wonderful shop, full of exclusively British yarn and some fantastic project bags and notions. Couldn't have received a warmer welcome and very much enjoyed my visit.


Kate’s wonderful welcome & expertise, the utterly succulent array of yarns & gifts-and the opportunity to meet & share with other knitters. A piece of heaven!!
