We are a friendly bunch...

A trio of knitting enthusiasts happy to talk all day about knitting, crochet and beautiful yarns.

meet the team


Having knit and crocheted for over 60 years my mission was to create a beautiful wool shop with a vintage feel, to suit all tastes and pockets, and to ensure your visit is an enjoyable experience. I can personally guarantee you will receive friendly, professional and knowledgable service. Warmest regards Maria x



I’m never not knitting or crocheting! That's me ......... well almost! I also have a thing for beautiful yarns. You could say I'm obsessed! I always have multiple projects on the needles or at the end of a hook - from sock knitting to crochet blankets, from sweater knitting to crochet bunting, and the list goes on. The biggest problem is that there are simply not enough hours in the day to do all the yarny things! Working at Alnwick Yarn Company surrounded by yarn is my happy place.



I spend as much of my spare time knitting as possible, and I’ve recently started to crochet too. I just love working with colour, and the textures and patterns you can create with yarn. I always have a few projects on the go but my favourite thing to knit is a top down sweater on circular needles - no seams to sew up!  Chatting with customers about all things yarn-related is one of the best things about working at Alnwick Yarn Company.
