Handweavers latest update

We are open, but doing so as safely as possibile! With the aim of keeping our staff and customers safe we continue to observe covid secure guidelines - entry is monitored, facemasks required, hand sanitiser conveniently placed and windows open for ventilation. Our bricks and mortar shop opens Monday-Saturday 10am-6pm If you are not visiting in person you can phone to speak with one our knowledgeable staff during these hours.

We are continuing with click & collect plus prompt despatch of online orders - same day whenever possible! Due to the current covid challenges we have noticed that patchy delivery times can occur from time to time with Royal Mail, so if you have a deadline to meet we suggest sending by Special Delivery with tracking and guaranteed next day delivery, please put items in your online basket then call us to arrange this with us.

For customers living in the EU and having orders shipped to an EU address UK VAT is removed from your order when you enter your country on the shipping page. You will be contacted by your country's customs if there is a need to charge for local taxes.

We have an extensive range of materials and equipment for the whole world of fibre art and textile crafts - yarns for weavers and knitters; merino tops; plant, animal and 'other' fibres for spinners and felters; fancy threads for embroiderers ... the list goes on. And then there are the shuttles, high and low-tech looms, tapestry frames, spinning wheels, carders, niddy-noddies, tassel moulds and a host of other equipment, large and small... plus books and magazines covering a wide range of textile topics to instruct and inspire both children and adults. Most of our yarns and fibres are available in really small quantities, so you needn't worry about breaking the bank!
