welcome

Thanks for visiting our new website created at Christmas 2019. As an independent yarn shop, we do our best to help you convert your inspirations into finished projects made by hand with lots of care and attention to detail. In our shop we take pride in giving advice from years of experience. Please help us keep up our aims by letting us know of any improvements to this site or our offers.

At Yarnfest we look to give you plenty of choice of good quality products to support knitting, crochet, needle felting (both dry and wet) and kumihimo. We have access to a wide range of suppliers to give you plenty of choice of yarns for everyday use through to special occasions. Additionally, we support local artisans from wood-turners to bee-keepers.
