A friendly local yarn store in the heart of a bustling medieval market town, where you can be sure of a warm welcome!
Here at The Yarn Dispensary, we aim to provide the highest quality of natural-fibre yarns, patterns, and needles and notions to make your crafting projects a joy. From commercial yarns from West Yorkshire Spinners and Rowan, to hand-dyed beauties from Fyberspates, and award nominated Truly Hooked, there is sure to be something for everyone.
The vision and ethos of the store was to be a community hub and support independent brands and producers and we do just that with Marley Yarns - spun from a local Wensleydale Flock, and project bags and notions made by local artisans including screen printers and silversmiths. Our comfy sofa is the perfect place to flop and flick through our pattern folders and specialist books for inspiration, or to enjoy a cup of tea (if you happen to arrive when we've got the kettle on, we'll always invite you to join us!) and a quiet moment or two to knit or crochet.
Our FREE Knit and Stitch Night is on Thursdays from 7pm - 9pm. Bring a project: knitting, crochet, tatting, weaving, sewing, whatever you fancy and settle in for a couple of hours crafting and chatting time with complementary hot beverages and treats!
We also have a comprehensive list of workshops and courses for both adults and children published on our website, and our expert teachers provide private lessons.
