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.
I hope to see you really soon.

So, my time as a giant, hippo-esque pregnant woman is almost up, my desire for an almond croissant every morning cant be excused for much longer so I’m indulging in all things pastry based for as long as I can.
The shop will be in the extremely capable hands of my gorgeous ladies; Becki, Fran, Lisa, Sara and our new girl Sarah. If you need anything these are the dudes for you!
We will be able to order any yarn or needles you need (as we have always done) as my gorgeous mama Janice will be ordering like before – Rowan and Debbie Bliss will be on a weekly basis, as is Noro, Louisa Harding, Araucania, Mirasol, Juniper Moon Farm, Ella Rae, KnitPro and Patons; everything else is on a monthly basis, although it is worth checking to see if we can do a special order for you.
For the duration of my maternity leave our little webshop will be out of action, I don’t want to make any baby brain mistakes with your precious (and, if you are anything like me, anxiously waiting) orders, so I had best stay far away from anything important! If you would like anything posted to you please just give the girls a ring and they will sort it out for you. The shop number is 01225 469144 and we are open Monday to Saturday 9:30-17:30, so call at any time.
I will update you with any baby news as soon as the little Shipley #2 makes an appearance.
In the meantime, have a wonderful knitty summer and I will hopefully see you all in November.
Loads of love
Laura & Bump xx
