About Us

Hi my name is 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 amazing 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 each and 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.

"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either!”

Tangled Yarn is an online yarn shop; we stock only those yarns that I’d be happy to use myself. I love supporting smaller yarn producers especially those from the UK but we also have some main stream brands too. In 2015 we introduced Mabel & Ivy our own in house brand. This coming year I’ll be working with independent knitwear designers to produce a range of patterns for both Coast and Supersoft. If you are a designer and are looking for yarn support please do get in touch.

Providing that little bit more is what Tangled Yarn is all about. I love connecting with my customers through social media or chatting over the telephone when help is needed whether is choosing the right yarn for a particular pattern or putting colours together.  

Here’s just what a few customers had to say about us
