Carole’s Etsy shop from where you can purchase many of her hand knitted garments, though if you want anything special, a commissioned one? Feel free to give us a ring.

UP DATE 16.1.21 The ice has gone to be replaced by a soggy and muddy public footpath alongside our mooring off Crabtree Lane near Burscough so if you would like to contact and collect from us today between 1 and 3 you would be advised to put on your wellies, boots or stout shoes.

Time to stock up?

How much longer can we do contact and collect?

At the moment we can offer a contact and collect service for your yarn and wool supplies, which we will do this Friday in #Burscough and on Saturday from the public footpath alongside our mooring just off Crabtree Lane near Burscough.

We’ll be available from 1-3 on both days.

For orders please get in contact via social media or give us a ring on 07931 356204.

Carole and Colin on The Wool Boat.

The Wool Boats crew plan’s for the week of 11th January to 17th of January 2021.
It looks like the ice may have melted enough for us to be able to move sometime this week.
Under the present government advice we can provide a limited service of contact and collect.
We are thus planning to be available for a couple of hours on Friday and Saturday this week.
We are not available on Wednesday as last week as we have a 14th wedding anniversary to celebrate 🙂
As we may be able to move we are not quite sure where we will be open, mooring, towpath, Burscough village?
When you do contact us to order we will be able to let you know where we are, or will contact you in the morning of Friday or Saturday to let you know.
Local deliveries are available as well.
We are calling our operations “contact and collect” as we feel this is far more flexible and efficient than “click and collect”, so different ways to contact us, website, phone 07931 356204, or e-mail.

About us

Where and when is The Wool Boat open?

The Wool Boat is based on the canal narrow boat “Emma Maye”. During the winter we are based on the Leeds and Liverpool canal in the Burscough area of Lancashire. Over the summer we cruise the inland waterways of the country. This means
we will keep this website up dated as to where and when we plan to be open.

New baby yarn page added to the website https://thewoolboat.co.uk/baby-yarns/
