British Wool Knitting & Crafting Kits
Following is an alphabetical list of all the sources & stockists of British wool knitting, crochet, felting & other craft kits that have been identified. If you know of a stockist or source of these that is not listed please contact me through the website contact, Facebook Group, Twitter or Ravelry Group so they can be added to the list.
Please note - Some of these stockists also stock wool kits in addition to their British wool kits. You may need to check with them if you're unsure if a particular wool was 'grown' on British animals. Falklands wool is being regarded as British by Woolsack since it is from a British Overseas Territory.
This list should be regarded as a source of information only and not recommendations by anyone involved with Woolsack.
