It’s always lovely visiting Wild & Woolly where Anna and her team are happy to help - and they also put the kettle on!

The cubbies at Wild & Woolly are always a source of inspiration when you’re stuck on where to begin!

There have been a lot of changes at Wild & Woolly this year, including a mini refurbishment to accommodate more yarns - and new yarns too! It’s all part of their plan to build community and be as welcoming as possible.

With yarns such as Tukuwool, Triskelion Yarn, Rosy Green Wool, Rauwerk, De Rerum Natura and Rosa Pomar, there’s something here to suit everyone. Local dyers tucked in amongst the shelves include Travelknitter, The Wool Kitchen and Third Vault Yarns and there’s accessories and needles from Cocoknits, ChiaoGoo and Soak to keep your notions bags happy too.

One of the things that Wild & Woolly do extremely well are their events and classes programming. As well as being part of the East London Yarn Triangle’s InterKnitty Express during this year’s Great London Yarn Crawl they’ve got a great line up:
