Lovely shop - I could've got really carried away and spent a fortune. Owner was very helpful and friendly. Take cash or cheques, she doesn't do cards! Definitely worth a visit - would even make a special journey to get wool there.

A must visit if you're into knitting and crocheting. Small shop of many beautiful coloured yarns and clothing, etc. I bought a gorgeous bobbled yarn to knot a baby scarf.
