We are trying new things here and hope that you like them. The idea is to show you the new yarns and give you inspiration, as well as showing you what we can offer & what you can achieve!

We might only be a small shop in the little market town of Ormskirk but we have a lot of very enthusiastic and talented customers!

You can also use the web site to find out about the courses that we are running. We are expanding our range of courses which already cover all aspects of knitting, crochet and spinning, to include felting and lace making and we are hoping to further increase the range soon. We can also teach courses and give talks on relevant topics to schools groups, Womens Institute groups etc
