We have been stocking knitting wool for a number of years now. We found there a has been a huge resurgence in art of knitting , it’s thereaputic, a great way to relax and and a great way to customise an outfit with a handknit scarf or hat.
As well as stocking the finished product, we stock a large range of Donegal Wool, Kilcarra Homespun Wools, Tivoli and Cushendale Wools.
