TEMPORARY REDUCED OPENING HOURS 10am-4pm, Tuesday to Saturday
I am delighted to be able to reopen. Initially, only one customer will be allowed in the shop at any time. The protocols will be in line with the Government’s most up to date guidance. This will be kept under review and adjusted as appropriate.
I appreciate that many of you may still be unable to visit. Please continue to call or email with your requirements, or request a video consultation, if that suits you better.
Thank you for your ongoing support. I look forward to seeing you soon.
SPECIAL MAIL ORDER SERVICE
I would like to give my customers the opportunity to re-stock during the lockdown phase. In a way where I can preserve the personal contact and service ethos of the shop.
Following a successful trial, I will offer this service on a periodic basis, depending on customer demand and how the Government’s health advice develops. My website will be updated to show when the service will operate.
There may be small delays and glitches, as only myself or Lucy Hague can be in the shop at one time, and we will post deliveries every few days.
I will endeavour to provide the best possible service I can at these difficult times.
Kathy’s Knits has brought yarn back to Broughton Street, Edinburgh!
Our Edinburgh knitting shop stocks a wide range of high quality British yarns in a warm and welcoming environment. You’ll find all kinds of needles, crochet hooks, patterns, books and accessories, as well as fleeces and spindles for spinning.
Whether you’re a seasoned yarnie or just starting out, our shelves are stacked full of inspiring ideas and solutions. And, of course, there’s helpful support and advice on hand when you need it.
Our website can only give you a flavour of what we offer. There’s nothing quite like seeing the yarn, feeling the texture, and being able to chat things over. So, we invite you to pop in, browse at your leisure, bring your knitting and let us help you with your latest knitting project.
Special Events at Kathy’s Knits March 2020
Many of you will be as disappointed as me that there is no Edinburgh Yarn Festival in 2020. Hopefully it will return in 2021.
Many people have already told me that they are coming in March anyway. The overall experience of coming to Edinburgh and Scotland, including visits to yarn shops,is an experience they would like to sample for the first time or repeat.
For that reason, I have organised a number of events and guest appearances in the shop during March 2020, in conjunction with Lucy Hague, our friend, the well known pattern designer. The programme is set out to the right and there will be more details nearer the time. Click on the image to download as a PDF or click here.
Finest British Yarns
100% of the stock in our knitting shop is sourced from small, independent farms and producers from within the British Isles. This helps to support smaller, local, sustainable farms. It also minimises the impact on the environment and allows us to offer some exclusive yarns, not available elsewhere in Scotland.
Our natural fibre wool, mohair and rare breed yarns are of the highest quality thanks to a combination of bulk, resilience, softness and warmth.
