Great place for local natural wool, patterns and knitted gifts.
Aug 2020
I visited this shop in search of Wensleydale woo. The shop was well stocked with wool and patterns and the assistant was very friendly and knowledgeable about the yarn.

Help with knitting
Jun 2020 • Couples
A massive thank you to Kath, I had made a mistake on my knitting and she took the time to explain and put right and got me back to having the correct amount of stitches. Nothing is too much trouble well worth a visit to a lovely shop that caters for all needs

Wonderful Service For Online Order To Italy
Mar 2019 • Solo
Ordered Wensleydale Longwool DK for a Gansey pattern designed by Martin Storey. Fabulous lady Kath organised everything so meticulously in spite of her busy schedule of shop plus many trade show commitments. Wool, 1kg of fabulous 'Fennel' colour plus other Wensleydale products such as soap, wool wash, lanolin cream etc arrived beautifully and efficiently packaged for the courier delivery. Kath deserves top star rating and a massive thank you. I recommend looking at her wool for any future knitting projects and supporting this wonderful product which also supports the rare breed sheep of Yorkshire. Buy British Wool and support these lovely sheep, from The Northern Isles south together with their guardians for the future.

Lovely lovely shop
Oct 2018
Took a while to find this shop tucked away down an alley off the market place, but if you are a knitter, beginner or expert, or just want a lovely new knitted garment made from local wool, this is an unmissable shop. I found the member of staff very helpful, especially as I didn't really know what I wanted! I had browsed the website before my visit, but there is much more to chose from if you visit. Came away with a sweater to knit having tried a ready made one on in the shop. Can't wait to get started on it! The wool is super soft and snuggly. I can't think it will be itcy on my skin.. Worth a trip and very tempting once you are there. Well done to the sheep and the ladies who have made this happen.

Beautiful shop for wool and woolly items.
May 2018 • Couples
This is a beautiful shop tucked away in the small market town of Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales. I called with my husband in May and he spotted a sweater knitted in the Wensleydale Aran, the pattern is available from age 3 to adult sizes. I choose a marl grey/fennel colourway. It knits up beautifully and has a lovely sheen. The lady in the shop was so helpful and I will definitely return. Even if you are not a knitter it's definitely worth a visit. The yarns are well priced and of exceptional quality.

Beautiful yarn and knitwear shop
Aug 2017 • Couples
This pretty shop is worth visiting whether you are a knitter or not. The rare breed lustrous Wensleydale wool is available both as yarn and as finished handknit garments; and there are lanolin products and sheep themed souvenirs for those who visit out of cultural interest.

Lovely woollen items here

This business is now more accessible as it has a lovely shop in the centre of Leyburn. My wife put an order in for a waistcoat to be knitted to her specifications.

A spinners heaven

I popped in here and was delighted to find reasonably priced Wensleydale rovings. There were also fleeces in the raw. You can buy small amounts or a whole fleece. A very nice helpful lady we will return

Great knitted products
Sep 2017 • Couples
My wife and I have been buying knitted goods from the shop when it was run from the owner's house a couple of miles away for some years. The business has new management and has new modern retail premises just off the Market Place in Leyburn - between Serendipity and the Posthorn cafe along the alley way to the car park. The wool and the knitters are the same so a great place to come for all your knitting needs and finished garments. My wife has also bought by mail order when having a garment specially made.
