Tangled Yarn is primarily an online yarn shop; we stock only those yarns that we'd be happy to use. We love supporting smaller yarn producers, especially those from the UK, but we have some mainstream brands focusing on women lead businesses.
It has always been part of our long-term plan to make Tangled Yarn more accessible to our customers. In February 2022, we moved into new premises in Romiley, Stockport. If you would like to visit, you can find more information here.
Providing that little bit more is what Tangled Yarn is all about. That's why connecting with our customers through social media is essential to us! So do share your latest makes on Instagram with us; our hashtag is #tangledyarnuk. If you need help choosing the right yarn for a particular pattern or putting colours together, reach out to me; I'd be happy to help.
We are a small business, but that doesn't mean we have small ideas; we think big and can achieve anything! I'm living proof of that! I dreamed I'd have my own business one day, and now I do, but that wouldn't have happened without my wonderful customers, so thank you!
It's good to put a face to the name. I'm Rachel, and I set up Tangled Yarn in 2011. I was taught to knit when I was eight by my Nana who had an infinite amount of patience and was, without a doubt, a dab hand with a pair of knitting needles. She was also fantastic at darning socks, something I've never been able to get to grips with!
Knitting to me is about more than just producing a beautiful knitted garment; it's about every stitch that goes into making the finished garment; it's about the joy and pleasure it brings to me every day! I've found great comfort from my yarn and knitting needles over the years.
