Pop-up wool shop opens at Farsley’s ‘centre of creative reuse’

By Noelle Williamson

Knitters, crochet enthusiasts and weavers, if you go down to SCRAP today, you’re in for a big surprise. There’s a pop-up wool shop just inside the door, with boxes and boxes of Katia yarns! 

There’s pure merino wool. There’s  silk. There’s alpaca. There’s cotton. There’s 100% acrylic or polyester. There are mixed natural and synthetic yarns. There are also mixed bags of DK colours ideal for granny squares and amigurumi. 

There’s every weight you can think of and most of the colour wheel too, primary, pastel or dayglo disco! 

And it’s all £2.50 or £3 a ball, depending on whether it’s labelled or not. (Most of it is!) And you can match batch numbers.  Having said that, I recommend visiting very soon. Director Louise Lucas, who makes a fine cup of coffee, told me that the pop-up wool shop will be open until July 10th, but I would add… while stocks last… 

If you are into recycling, crafting or fancy dress and you don’t know SCRAP, at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley,  you’re missing out. And for the designated driver on the yarn run, while your other half scuttles cackling from one glorious bargain to the next, there’s fresh coffee and baked goodies for you. 

What are you waiting for?
