    Our COVID response

    Our COVID response

    Thank you for shopping with us during these difficult times.  We continue to operate with a pared down and nimble crew and have made it our mission to serve you for as long as possible during this crisis.  We are knitters and we know how important our craft is to us during difficult times.  Please be assured we are doing all we can to remain open and safe.

    Extra care with staff:  We have reduced our packing staff to just one person (me!) and I will be packing your orders as they come in.  Most of our staff is now working from home or are staying at home.

    Hygiene:  Constant hand washing as well as regular cleaning at the beginning and end of shifts of all high-touch surfaces in and around packing stations including door handles, light switches and other highly used areas.

    Yarn is safe:  We are now wearing gloves when handling your orders but we believe the virus does not last long on materials such as wool.

    Thank you for being patient: Because of having just one packer to manage the packing of all orders coming in, we anticipate having a delay in getting your orders out.  We continue to respond to emails and texts as usual and as best we can.  Thank you for your understanding and patience while we work hard to fulfill your orders and answer questions.

    Our yarn supply is good:  We continue to receive our stock orders without delay from overseas.  Only two vendors have been unable to continue at this time and most everyone is managing to continue operations.  You should be able to access what you need from us but if not, let us know.

    Shop Update: Vanilla Sweater #2, Woolly Mammoth Natural Sock yarn

    Hi everyone, I hope you enjoy this episode. I hope you are doing okay and staying connected while observing social distancing at the same time. Very strange times, but thank goodness we have our knitting.
    Quick mention about John Arbon's Exmoor Sock yarn. I have confused many people - it's not in the shop yet. I was giving you a preview. It will be in the shop very soon. Thank you for your patience while we try to work within the limitations imposed on us by the virus.
    We are doing our best to answer your questions and fulfill your orders all while being safe and careful. We truly appreciate you shopping with us and keeping us working. Thank you and enjoy the show!

    These are very trying and stressful times and we have a long way to go.  We hope you are all well and safe.  For now, we are able to stay open and process your orders so please continue to shop online with us.  We are taking precautions to ensure our staff's safety by going to a skeleton crew of one person in the shop at any time so you may experience a small delay in your order being processed.  We hope you understand.  If you have any questions or concerns please email us at info@thewoollythistle.com and we will reply to you at our earliest convenience.

    Shop Update: another Vanilla Sweater in the works and my Norwegian Star Cardi

    Welcome to The Woolly Thistle's shop update!
    Announcements: PLEASE NOTE THAT THE KATIE GREEN BEAN POP UP EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.
    We will be in touch with those who purchased tickets via email.
    We are really sorry this has been canceled but are sure you understand.
    dAlso just want to mention that when I recorded this things weren't quite as serious as they are now so my blether about traveling to festivals feels a bit out of touch. I just want to acknowledge that the situation is quite different from when I recorded on Sunday.

    Thanks to your purchases in January we are very please do have made a donation of 5% of our January profits to World Wildlife Fund of Australia.  Following the bush fires many animals lost their lives and homes and WWF of Australia has been working tirelessly to rescue animals, rehabilitate them, re-home them and work on recreating their habitats.  This is a very worthwhile cause, and I thank you very much for supporting our efforts to give to this worthy charity.
