welcome to wool
Bath’s Finest Knitting Emporium.
In the centre of Bath, but set back from the hustle and bustle, you will find wool; a haven for knitters where you can browse the shelves and choose your patterns in a welcoming, friendly atmosphere.
My name is Laura and I opened my little shop in October 2010. I wanted to create a lovely, relaxed space, with comfy sofas on which to choose your yarn; a please-do-touch shop where the service is second to none.
And if that weren’t enough you can now buy absolutely everything we keep in store ONLINE. If you cant get in (or parking is too expensive!!) please don’t hesitate to indulge your knitting passions online.
I hope to see you really soon.

So Christmas is nearly here- where did this year go??? I'm astonished at the speed of 2013; blink and you'd have missed it. Not only did we have a shop full of the best selection of yarn ever, there have been some other interesting bits along the way!
At the risk of boring you all I want to say 2013 has been the most amazing year for me personally, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who has been part of my special year: your love and support is truly fantastic!
A big thank you goes out to my wonderful family. In August this year they were there in full force to witness my wedding to my best friend, Dan. Mum, Dad and Jemma I especially want to thank you for everything you do. I love you. Dan, thank you for our beautiful wedding day. I sometimes feel I could burst with happiness because of you. I love you.
And just when I thought life couldn't get better this little perfect bundle came along (taking his time...40 hours of labour but absolutely worth it!)
Introducing Joseph John Shipley born 28th November weighing a sturdy 7lb 9oz. I am completely smitten!
While I am away kissing and cuddling this gorgeous creature the shop is in very capable hands. I'd like to say a massive thank you to Karen, Fran, Sara, Becki and mum for doing such an amazing job. You are the A Team!!
I'd also love to send Christmas wishes to all my lovely customers. Wishing you all a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2014.
