Wool Couture Store Opening

Wool Couture Store Opening

We are extremely excited to announce that our lovely client Wool Couture have opened up their very first flagship store in Yorkshire.

Initially turning to her most favoured hobby knitting to help cope with anxiety and depression, founder Claire saw herself huddled amongst copious amounts of gorgeous knitted scarves! Not knowing what to do with them,  she decided to put her first one up for sale on online store Etsy, after being sold within twenty hours, Claire continued to create and sell not only ready-made products, but patterns, needles and yarn too!

Her success and passion for knitting led her to build a successful online business in 2015 named Wool Couture. It has since grown into the fabulous enterprise it is today. Now, three years on, Claire and her business partner Ali have refurbished a once well-known pub in Barnsley to open their very first shop.

Nestled in scenic South Yorkshire, overlooking stunning views of golden fields, the store is the perfect spot to shop for woollen goodies for amateurs to knitting veterans.

The cozy space is also open for workshops offering sessions on crocheting, weaving, knitting and experimenting with Macramé.

The opening which took place on Tuesday 18th September was complete with bubbly and canapés, as people who attended had a chance to listen to what investors Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvani from Dragon’s Den had to say about Wool Couture.

It was certainly a magical evening for a magical journey ahead.

Don’t forget to pop down to the new store if you’re local, or head over to their website www.woolcouturecompany.com to see their gorgeous line up of products from chunky knit blankets and pillows to big weaving looms, extreme epic balls of yarn, giant knitting needles, crochet and macramé projects. And of course their festive Christmas collection!
