The Ball and Needle online knitting shop we like to keep all the bases covered, which is why you will find all manner of wool and yarn whilst browsing our online store. We are so blessed to have such a sustanable supply of amazing natural material in the UK which comes from our resident sheep. Counties like Devon are home to numerous breeds like Alpaca and Devon Closewool which provide us with some lovely wool. Once you've navigated to our knitting wool page you can choose from the following sub categories; Chunky & Bulky Yarns, Fancy Yarns, Luxury Yarns, Sock Yarns, DK Yarns, Aran Yarns, 4ply Yarns, Baby Yarns and Laceweight Yarn. All of these are self explanatory for regular knitters but as always if you have any questions we are more than happy to help.

Knitting Wool

Whether you're in search of something vibrant, multi-tonal, pastel or tweed, we'll have something to suit your requirements. Have a browse, and if you can't find the knitting wool or knitting yarn you're looking for then let us know and we'll do our best to source it. We often run a knitting wool sale where you can land yourself some cheap knitting wool sometimes along with a pattern and needles. Double knitting wool is popular amongst our customer and we have a large range from designers including Patons, Cygnet, Robin, Teddy, Wendy and V&A extra value. So you can be assured that you are dealing with one of the UK's leading knitting wool suppliers UK run by specialists in the field. Aran is one of my favourite wools and one that is often used for knitting baby garments as it is so warm, soft and gentle on the skin. In fact baby knitting wool is one of the most sought after products. Many of my friends got into knitting whilst they were pregnant as it a nice way to spend the time when you find you have to sit down for long periods. On top of that you get to put love into your project and experience a real sense of achievement and happynesss dressng up your little one in something you made yourself.
