Little Houndales Knits was established in 2010 as a result of a love of yarn and a need for distraction from life's curve balls.
In the June of 2010, after our flock of Suffolk X sheep at Little Houndales Farm had been sheared, I searched the internet for a company that would spin the fleeces into yarn. After some research and several phone calls, The Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall created an aran weight yarn from the first batch of fleeces.
I then took a stall at two local Farmers' Markets one morning a month and it was here that I got a feel for the enthusiasm from knitters of how hard it was to find ‘proper wool’ and how pleased they were to find us! From these humble beginnings Little Houndales Knits now stocks a large selection of commercial yarns and premium branded knitting needles and notions - as well as our own-branded yarn of course.
We no longer have a shop presence, but offer support to all our customers by email, phone or video call, and aim to assist you with finding the perfect yarn to ensure your project is both enjoyable and successful. All our products can be found on our website, with Free local collection, or free UK delivery on orders over £20.
