Welcome to Yarn N Yarns, a small independent yarn shop based on the coast in South Wales, just a couple of miles outside of Cardiff.
My name is Angela and in 2017 I accidentally became a yarn shop owner!! And it’s been the best adventure (and hardest work) of my life. I had recently moved to Wales with my partner James, and as an avid knitter and crocheter I thought that joining the knit night at the local yarn shop would be a fantastic way to meet people and make new friends.
Several months after I joined, the shop owner announced that she wanted to retire, I half jokingly said to James ‘I could run that shop’, his reply was ‘yes you could’ and it all snowballed from there and I accidentally became a yarn shop owner. Alongside the shop I also started a Youtube channel to document my journey as a shop owner, I upload several videos a week to the channel, not just about what’s happening with the shop but also chatting about what I’ve been making and, anything and everything that brings me a little bit of joy. You can find the channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/yarnnyarns
Recently the lease on the shop premises that I was renting came to an end, and being unable to renew the lease I decided to move Yarn N Yarns online.
Unexpectedly after I announce the shop closure another small family run business reached out to me to offer me a small space in their shop so I still have somewhere you can come in person to take a look at some of the stock (I don’t have room to keep everything on display there) and get help and advice in person if you need it.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you have enjoyed your time here.
If you have been unable to find what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to order in any of lines from the brands that I stock even if they don’t feature among the regular stock that I keep.
