Handweavers open again!

We are pleased to announce handweavers is now open for personal shoppers.

We are still operating a monitored access policy. Please use the door bell and we will welcome you. There is a limit to the number of people we can safely accommodate which can vary depending on circumstances. We are continuing to provide "Click & collect" service for orders placed online or by phone. Orders can be collected within usual shop opening hours.

Royal Mail and courier companies are all working hard to keep deliveries running as normally as possible, however please be aware that from time to time they may experience heavier than usual workloads in combination with staff shortages so there may be times when your order does not arrive within the usual timescale. If you need items urgently so would like Special Delivery with tracking and guaranteed next day delivery please put items in the online basket then call us and we will let you know the available option for your order.

If you need to speak with us, please call 020 7272 1891 (10am - 6pm Monday to Saturday)

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! Our immediate workshop programme and regular weaving classes have been postponed until it is safe to run them again, but if you are interested in a particular workshop, let us know and we are happy to let you know when we can start planning again with certainty.
