The Woolly Thistle
Your trusted source for a thoughtfully curated collection of quality knitting products and woolly wool yarns from crofters and small producers around the world.
Stories from Our Yarn Producers
Here at The Woolly Thistle we encourage woolly wanderlust and share information about where the wool was grown and milled. We specialize in finding yarn made at the source whether that be on wild Scottish islands, or in the bucolic Devon countryside. We are passionate about yarns with a story!
