I absolutely adore all things woolly. I have always knitted and crocheted whenever and wherever I can, and I was keen to be able to incorporate a yarn shop within the Crafty Praxis shop.
I stock both commercial and independent yarns. I chose Stylecraft for the commercial yarns, as it is local, affordable and good quality. I also have a range of patterns for the yarns I stock from Stylecraft.
My independent suppliers are all from Huddersfield – Aldersign, The Feminine Touch Designs, Mill House Designs, Yarntelier and Crafty Dragon to name a few.
There are knitting and crochet kits, hand dyed yarns in a variety of weights – even mini skein sets. (I offer a ball winding service). There are patterns from the afore mentioned designers, available as books or single patterns. I have hand spun yarns, drop spindles and fibre for felting and spinning too. Here is Alfie (my shop doggo) modelling the hand spun from Crafty Dragon.
I also have equipment and notions such as yarn bowls, nostepinnes, needles and hooks (vintage and new), buttons, counters, markers and many other useful bits and bobs.
There are usually some completed pieces for sale such as shawls, baby clothes and blankets for those who love handmade items but cannot make them.
And Finally !!! If you’d like to learn how to knit, crochet or have a go at other woolly crafts, please see the workshops for the upcoming sessions we have coming up!
