The Knitting Shed


Two sisters and a family business where we get to indulge our passion for yarn and design.

We’ll have with us at Festiwool our nostalgic children’s dress and romper kits inspired by the pillow slip sun dresses of more frugal times, updated with Liberty Tana Lawn and super soft machine washable pima cotton.

A growing range of hand-dyed yarns in muted wearable colours. The sock yarns are Blue Faced Leicester Smooth Sock, Slubby Sock and Classic Sock, for those that prefer a touch of nylon. These are available as single skeins, sock sets or mini skeins.

For more luxurious knits we have silk blends of merino, mohair or alpaca perfect for shawls with drape and for a rustic yarn we’ll have our new BFL Masham DK base.

For when the knitting is finished there’s our range of quirky wooden blockers and Lazadas blocking wires to even out the stitches and you can always reward yourself with one of our knitters’ medals.
