There is a lovely little wool shop in Lee-on-Solent called Sandcastle Yarns. I used to live closer but since I moved to Southsea I haven’t been able to visit it as often. However the other day I popped in to have a look around and of course I found some wool to fall in love with.
I like writing about where I buy my fabric and wool from for several reasons. Firstly I always get really excited and I love to share my excitement and show you all my treasure! Secondly its important to let people know that these shops are out there so that we can support them and keep them in business. Although its great to buy online sometimes, you can’t beat getting to pick your wool up from a lovely shop, full to bursting with inspirational colours and textures.
Plus the lady who owns this shop is ace and is always happy to help you with a project. I took in a ball of chunky wool once and asked her if she thought there was enough left to make a pair of wristwarmers…she gave me advice, number of stitches and rows etc and bingo a lovely handmade Christmas present for my sister!
