Ewe & Ply and the Eclectic Tea Room
We are based in Oswestry in Shropshire. We sell a huge, wonderful range of natural and ethically sourced quality British wool, yarn and fibre, including Shropshire Ply – a woolen yarn traditionally spun from the fleeces of our own flock and other local sheep then kettle-dyed by us in semi-solid colours.

At Tribe our job is to bring you the loveliest, most inspiring yarns and accessories available, and to create a welcoming, informative, fun space for you to browse and buy, whether in our retail shop in stunning Richmond-upon-Thames, or through our online store. It’s not an unpleasant job.

Create, not consume.
We truly believe that “making” is at our cores as human beings.
The Village Haberdashery
The Village Haberdashery is a modern craft shop and class studio based in West Hampstead, London. The aim is to inspire everyone who walks through our door – or clicks onto their website – to make something amazing! They love to put a modern spin on traditional crafts and hand pick products with contemporary crafters in mind. Many of the products they stock are locally, independently and or sustainably produced and everything they offer is beautifully designed.
Annie Barker opened The Village Haberdashery online in February 2012 and the West Hampstead shop in December 2012. The bricks and mortar shop is beloved by makers and has become a travel destination for visitors from all over the world.
In early 2017, The Village Haberdashery moved its flagship shop to a bigger, brighter space to West Hampstead Square in the heart of West Hampstead’s business district.

Nach 32 Jahren brauchte ich eine Pause von meinem Beruf. Mein Hobby (das Stricken) wurde mir immer wichtiger. Während dieser Zeit stellte ich fest, wie schwierig es ist hochwertige Garne zu kaufen. Genauso wichtig ist es für mich mulsingfreie Wolle zu verarbeiten. Da beides nicht so einfach zu bekommen ist, entschied ich mich dazu qualitativ hochwertige Garne online zu verkaufen. Schnell war der Kontakt zu einigen Herstellern, die meinen Anforderungen entsprechen, geknüpft.Riverknits ist mein erster Lieferant mit großartigen Produkten, der meinen Vorstellungen entspricht. Ich freue mich sehr auf diese ZusammenarbeitIn den nächsten Jahren wird dem Online-Shop auch ein kleiner Wollladen folgen und ich hoffe auf tolle Workshops und Stricktreffen.
After 32 years, I needed a break from my job. My hobby (knitting) became more and more important to me. During this time I realized how difficult it is to buy high quality yarns. It is just as important for me as to work with wool that is free of mulsing. Since both are not so easy to get, I decided to sell high quality yarns online. I quickly made contact with a number of manufacturers who met my requirements. Riverknits is my first supplier of great products that meet my expectations. I’m very excited about this collaboration. In the next years a small wool shop will follow the online shop and I hope for great workshops and knitting meetings.
