New wools and fabrics now Online!

New wools and fabrics now Online!

We've been busy sending out lots and lots of your parcels here at Yandles, thank you SO MUCH for continuing to support our independent family business with your orders for wool, fabric, canvases and more.  We're doing our very best to secure supplies and although it's a little unpredictable out there righ now, stock is filtering through to us, who knew knitting would be so incredibly popular again?!

This week we expect to have the King Cole Big Value Super Chunky wool in stock again and the website will be updated as soon as we can get to it.  In the meantime, take a look at the gorgeous selection of Majestic yarn that we now stock.  With all of the impacts of climate change we think it's hugely important to start relying less upon synthetic materials and to give our customers more choices of natural materials for their projects, that's why this year we intend to focus more on natural and sustainable resources for crafting.  The Majestic range is a 50% pure wool product with 30% acrylic, giving it all of the inherent benefits of natural wool (warm, water repellent, insulating) along with the practical day to day convenience of machine washing.  Check out our range of stunning vintage colours here.

We are excited to now have Sirdar as a supplier, especially as they are heading a huge campaign for natural wool this Spring with the launch of their new 100% pure wool range.  we aim to have this in stock as soon as possible but in the meantime, keep your eyes open for their Country Classic range as we launch it online in the next couple of weeks, the colours are rich and the wool is so incredibly soft that you'll have hard decisions to make about what to make and like the majestic, this yarn is also 50% superwash wool.

What about Fabrics? Well we have a good few now up and running on the website and will be continuing to add more as the Lockdown progresses, giving you the chance to start planning some lighter weight projects in the Spring.  Don't forget that we also sell 6oz poly wadding and the glorious needle punched double width cotton wadding from The Warm Company for all your baby and childrens quilts where it is so important to use products that naturally regulate air circulation and temperature, it's not listed online yet but ou can contact us to make a telephone order.

And finally, we have news on canvases.  A large order has been placed with our supplier who finally has more stock and we are expecting a delivery any day so keep an eye out fas we update stock on the website but bear with us as we don't run an automated stock control system and like most small indie businesses, everything is done manually.

If you got this far, THANK YOU!  for being another of our fabulous customers, we can't wait to welcome you back again :)

Good Morning Folks

Hope you're all still keeping safe and well during this second Lockdown. 


For those of you  who were unable to visit us this summer, we've had a busy few months and since July have created three gorgeous departments for Art, Sewing and Wool and we also now have two great new team members on board.

Yvonne is a budding artist who comes to us after running her own retail business in Sherborne and will now be running the Art department.  She has some exciting plans and has ordered some great new products that will be in store for you after Lockdown and available to buy on our webshop very soon.  We also now have Phil on board who brings with him IT expertise and web design.  He is busy re-designing our Arts & Crafts webshop and getting many more  products online from our exciting new ranges in all three departments.

Our door maybe closed but we are OPEN ONLINE!

Phil and I are still manning the phones and online orders at Yandles Arts & Crafts shop so you can get access to your supplies and either have them delivered to you or arrange to Click & Collect from our front door Monday - Friday.

We're preparing the shop ready for re-opening on December 2nd and have a very exciting promotion lined up for Christmas so keep looking out for these newsletters and follow us on Social media to keep up to date with promotions and new products.


Stay Safe and See You Soon
