Notes

Kathy's Knits has brought yarn back to Broughton Street, Edinburgh!

Our new shop stocks a wide range of high quality British yarns, presented in a warm and welcoming environment. We specialise in natural fibre and hand-dyed yarns in beautiful colours, shades and textures to satisfy even the most demanding knitters. You are welcome to come along and browse at your leisure - bring your knitting or crochet and spend some time with us. You're sure to meet others that share your passion.

Our yarns are sourced from a select group of British farmers and suppliers including Blacker Yarns, Jeanette Sloan, New Lanark, JCRennie and Jamieson & Smith. All have been carefully chosen for their superb quality, range and reputation. Although we focus on Scottish breeds, our stock includes yarns from the Shetlands to Guernsey. Breeds include Hebridean, St Kilda, Shetland, Blue-faced Leicester, Romney, Wensleydale and Zwartbles.

We also stock a full range of needles, crochet hooks, patterns and accessories, finished garments and hand-made jewellery.

Kathy’s knits was a very nice discovery. All british wool with some hand dyes selection. Owner is very nice, friendly and knows her yarn. Lucy Hague is her assistant. You can see all her pattern knitted and get her books.
Loved it

What a nice shop with a wonderful selection of Scottish and British wool! Kathy is a delight as well as very knowledgeable about local yarns, dyers and spinners. She also has an excellent selection of Jameson and Smith if your Scotland Holiday doesn't take you to Shetland. The shop is on a lower level so if you're on Broughton St. and can't find her ask in a coffee shop as we did and someone will set you right.
