Introducing the 2022 TWT Selection Box!


We are delighted to introduce the 2022 Selection Box offering from The Woolly Thistle. Inspired by Christmas memories from childhood of opening the much anticipated and wished for Chocolate Selection boxes, it is only natural to have a woolly equivalent in the shop!

Over the last 6 years of growing The Woolly Thistle, we have learned a lot about wool and yarns from the UK and Europe. From the Highlands and Islands of Scotland through the Yorkshire Dales down to the South West Coast of Cornwall and Devon our love of woolly wools knows no limits and covers the length and breadth of the UK and beyond. We wanted to put that expertise to good use and curate a taster collection of our favorite yarns and goodies just for you. The Selection Box has become a holiday tradition here at The Woolly Thistle and we spend the year dreaming and scheming about all of our favorites and what to put in this special box. 

This year, we have hand picked an enviable Selection of our best selling and most special yarns and put them together in a unique and exciting package along with other goodies that you (or your special someone) will absolutely love.

With 800g of yarn, consider this Selection box to be a generous taste of just some of the great yarns available here at The Woolly Thistle! Each Selection box also includes a pattern suggestion card to offer you guidance as you embark upon making with the yarns in your box.

  • 100g Black Isle TWT Custom Spin - Fraoch (undyed)

A note about colors: We feel it is important to show you what you are buying and so we have listed out the items that will be in each box for you to see for yourself.  We want you to be confident that you are buying a really great Selection Box.  BUT!  We wanted to keep an element of SURPRISE so we will be deciding the colors that each box receives.  All of the colors for all the dyed (and natural color) yarns are beautiful so we feel confident that you will love our choices.
