We may only seem to be a small shop being based on a canal boat, but you may be surprised at the range of yarns we do carry.
We supply a range of shades and weights of yarn form 4 ply through double knitting and onto chunkies and Aran’s.
We also carry a good range of “Notions”, needles, for knitting and hooks for crochet, a selection of patterns and plenty of advice from Carole a very experienced knitter.
Our main ranges come from J C Bretts, a long established Yorkshire based yarn merchant.
We also carry ranges from West Yorkshire Spinners and Opal.

While we can post out yarn we would rather let you have the chance to come and see the yarn in real life, have a squidge, see the colours and buy straight from the boat.
You also get the advantage of buying from a knitter who will have knitted with the yarn, or know some one who has, you won’t have to wait for the post person, you’ll be dealing with real people, not a computer.
Col is also happy to deliver, for free, within a 10ish mile radius of Burscough when we are at “home” on the mooring and can take payment by cash or card when he drops your yarn off.
