A great little Boutique range of hand dye yarns. You can browse on line at the store http://www.joyofyarn.co.nz/ or visit James at the craft markets he attends. He has a very unique style that is a pleasure to knit with. He also runs a monthly Sunday knit tea and a friday night sock club, both great social gatherings for the local and wider community.

Their Website is Up. I met the owner in one of our Men Knitting Retreats and James is a wonderful guy and very helpful. All I can tell you is that even though I have not been to his shop , If I had to judge the shop by the owner, the shop must be cozy and people friendly.
