Quality Yarns from Small Yarn Producers
With the largest selection of yarns from the United Kingdom and beyond, there's something for every project or stash! When you order from The Woolly Thistle you receive your yarn quickly and without the added cost or worry of international shipping. We love yarns with a story and invite you to join us in a little woolly wanderlust while we share the stories about our yarn producers, where the wool comes from and how the yarns are made.
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!
