UK based, staying in beautiful hotels, includes accommodation, meals, visits, exclusive projects and workshops. NO single supplements or sharing.

Town End Alpaca Yarns

From the Lake District, we produce the softest alpaca knitting yarns.  Pure, naturally coloured alpaca yarns are still at the heart of our range.  We also have an increasing choice of alpaca with silk and wools and dyed in beautiful colours.  

We buy alpaca fleeces from UK breeders.  Bluefaced Leicester and fine Shetland come directly from farmers in the Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire.  We take great care in skirting and grading the fleeces so that the yarns are exceptionally soft.   Our yarns are then spun and dyed for us in the UK.

The Wooly Witch

The shop in West Calder, West Lothian, Scotland has knowledgeable staff passionate about hand-knitting and crochet and helping customers. The shop has an attractive  range of knitting and crochet supplies – knitting kits, yarn, patterns, needles and hooks.  Yarns include pure British wool, wool & acrylic mixes, baby alpaca, bamboo mix, cotton & raffia.
