There was a recent post to the Leeds Knitterati mailing list (the local knitting group) asking about local wool and equipment suppliers. I replied mentioning The Wool Shop and another member sent this which I had to share as its so good!
There’s also quite a good shop at the top of Eastgate (by all the bus stops), and one at the top edge of the Market hall (opposite corner to the Corn Exchange.) Samuel Taylor’s have minimal stuff (also now own the other haberdashery stall at the top of the market) but their warehouse has damn all – just more and more paper crafts stuff. There’s a nice little shop called Cath’s Sewing Box in Austhorpe Rd, Crossgates but her range can be a bit limited.
Anyone else still mourning the demise of Worth Knitting?
There’s Texere at Barkerend Rd in Bradford, who will ship, but it’s easier to pick up. Not sure if Ramsdens (Wendy etc) and Rowan allow colecion/ have a mill shop. Might be worth investigating.
So thanks to Anthea, for te suggestions and for allowing me to repost what she wrote. There were a few replies to this which mentioned Coldspring Mill too.
