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.
Further Information on March Events
I am delighted to welcome Desiree Ross of Abercairn Yarns and Helen Lockhart of Ripples Crafts, specialist hand dyers whose stock I sell in the shop.
The details of both events are below. Each trunk show will be supported by Lucy Hague who has produced a new pattern to go with their yarns.
Abercairn produce beautiful hand dyed yarns which I sell in the shop.
This is the opportunity to come in and meet Desiree Ross, who dyes the yarn.
Lucy Hague is also launching a new pattern using this yarn which you will be able to discuss and buy.

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.
