About Us

My name is Susan & together with my daughter Jacqueline we run Knit n Purl.

Knitting has always been a great passion of mine, since I first picked up the needles age 5 I've been hooked.  I started as a wool shop in Washington many moons ago and when the opportunity came to take over the existing M & Ns Woolshop in South shields I jumped at it.  We have been in our shop for 14 years and over that time have met some fantastic people and made new friends.  We have been able to introduce new brands and yarns and brought a fresh look to the shop.  We pride ourselves on our service and are always happy to help.

We stock yarns and patterns by Woolcraft/Jarol, Kingcole, Stylecraft & James Brett.  We also have a huge selection of haberdashery, lace, buttons and many more, too many to list. 

We launched our website 12 years ago which gave us the chance to bring our product range to many more.
