Skeins has been open for 4 years – happy birthday to us!!!

We have always kept our prices as competitive as possible however we now find that some of the main suppliers are increasing prices and whilst we have absorbed some over the years we now find that we, too,  have to start to increase our prices – starting with Sirdar  with the new prices coming into effect from Wednesday 6th 2019 – so if you have a project in mind call in and get your yarn before the increase!!

Lykke Driftwood knitting needles now with 30% off!

At Skeins we can provide you with all your knitting and crochet requirements. Choose from our selection of wool and yarns from some of the leading British spinners such as Sirdar, Stylecraft, King Cole, James C Brett,Yarn Stories  and West Yorkshire Spinners, plus needles and accessories from Knit Pro and Pony. Ideal for presents we now have a range of Vanessa Bee mugs, coasters and knitting /project bags.
