December 2023 Update
The shop is closed Saturday 23rd December until Thursday 28th December at 10am.
I am taking a mid-winter break from Sunday 31st December until Sunday 7th January 2024.
There is a new website coming in 2024 – please be patient as this happens. The most up to date information about the shop can be found on Facebook and Instagram.
Thank you for your support through 2023
Ewe & Yarn is a yarn store, in the market town of Thirsk, that offers a bright and relaxed atmosphere where you can browse and squish yarn to your heart’s content.
Ewe & Yarn developed from a passion for yarn, especially British wool and the creative use of colour.
Finding good quality yarn was not always easy and I loved to squish yarn before buying. Ordering yarn online never gave me the same satisfaction found at yarn shops and shows.
Meeting independent dyers, producers and those who raised the animals also became of interest, and I became aware of the designers who took the yarn and made it into works of art.
Ewe & Yarn is located in a bright airy store that is focusing on working with British companies. Being Yorkshire born and bred myself, I wanted to have names like West Yorkshire Spinners and Baa Ram Ewe on board, along with Yorkshire based Stylecraft and Sirdar.
The shop offers a range of products from the value ‘Special’ range from Stylecraft, to the exclusive ‘Titus’ from Baa Ram Ewe, along with a good mixture in between.
As the business progresses I hope to add some local independent dyers to the stock along with those who provide accessories for crafters.
So whether you come into the shop to browse, buy, chat, squish or knit with the knit and natter group, everyone is always welcome.
